95 points "The 2004 Seleccion Especial is a similar blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Merlot from the lowest yielding parcels on the estate. It was aged for 19 months in mostly new French oak. Inky purple-hued, the complex bouquet jumps from the glass. Notes of wood smoke, vanilla, toast, violets, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur are enticing and lead to an opulent, intense, deep, and super-sweet wine with incipient com- plexity. Well-balanced, long, and com- plete, it will unfurl in the cellar over the next 8-10 years and drink well through 2040. Score: 95 (Jay Miller, www.erobertparker.com, Feb. 2008)" Best 2016-2030
