Winemaker's Notes

The wine is stainless-steel fermented for approximately 22 days, then transferred to 98% new French Allier and 2% American Oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation. It is then aged for 14 months. The wine is lightly fined, and then bottled unfiltered.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused and balanced, this elegant red delivers plum, licorice and vanilla flavors, with fresh acidity and floral and mineral notes over fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2012. 3,000 cases imported."
90 Points

"The 2004 Allende is tighter on the nose compared to the 2003, with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit, licorice and a touch of mango emerging in the background. The palate is medium bodied with ripe tannins, crisp acidity and weight that build to a composed, anise-tinged finish that is fresh and lively. The 2004 would benefit from more bottle age and remains a great Rioja wine. Drink 2014-2022."
90 Points

"Stylish and alluring nose; quite sexy. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel, so the wine has mouthfeel and richness. Yet it’s a juicy, friendly, fruit-forward style of Tempranillo, one that finishes with mocha and wood-driven spice notes."
90 Points

"Ruby-red. Intense cherry, red berries and spices on the nose, with a strong mineral accent. Fresh and lively in the mouth, with exuberant raspberry and strawberry flavors tinged by a floral nuance. Finishes with bright, nervy red fruit tones and very good length."

Especially this one. Elegant, refined, well structured, beautiful cherry and raspberry notes with a touch of cedar and spice notes. Just really fing good, if you'll excuse me. GREAT 'table' wine in that it goes with a wide variety of food. Served it with a slightly spicy Spanish stew (chorizo, saffron, beef, bacon, pimento, wine) which worked well...but would be great with many other foods.
