Rave Review: WineEnthusiast.com on 2005 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva “904” – 96 Points!


“How many 96-point wines did I taste this year that are ready to drink now and sell for under $50? The answer is one…This one. Almost premature in its readiness, this precocious tawny colored, medium-bodied masterwork captures the essence of aged Rioja, and it’s only 10 years old. As I wrote in my tasting note after sampling this wonder: “One look, one whiff, one taste and you’re swooning.” Best of all, you don’t have to wait for it to come around; this is in fine drinking shape now.”
