Winemaker's Notes

"Slightly tighter and more complex than previous years, this single-vineyard wine delivers a ton of spice and herbs on a masculine bouquet and palate. Well-blended acids and tannins allow for it to be drunk now or over the next five to eight years." Wine Enthusiast
93 Points

"Refined and balanced, this elegant red delivers blackberry, espresso, tobacco and spice flavors in a dark but alluring package. Has intensity without heaviness, with a long, perfumed finish. Drink now through 2015."
Wine Spectator
92 Points

"The 2004 San Vicente is 100% Tempranillo Peludo sourced from a single vineyard and aged for 20 months in new French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, it offers an enticing bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an elegant Rioja with excellent balance, intense flavors, and 5-7 years of aging potential. It should be at its best between 2015 and 2025."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
91 Points

"Dark ruby. Intensely floral aromas of deep cherry and dark berries, violet and dried rose. Smooth in texture and sweet, with lush red fruit flavors, medium weight and no obvious tannins. Gains brightness on the finish, which offers impressive tangy persistence."
