90% Riojan Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.
"The 2004 Reserva is 90% Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano added to the blend. It was aged for 20 months in seasoned American and French oak.

On the palate it is medium-bodied with plenty of ripe cassis-flavored fruit, silky tannin, good balance, and a pure finish. Give it 3-4 years and drink it through 2020."
