Tasting Notes:
tasted: November 9, 2014 , from a member
93 points "Nose: fragrant; Aromas: herbal, woody, black berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: pleasant; After some lengthy airing (over an hour) this wine was surprisingly fruity, with bright plum and blackberry nestled in cedar and spice. Long, soft finish. Very nice and not showing its age at all."

96 points "The 2001 Gran Reserva 904 will not be released for another 3 years. Dark ruby-colored with a garnet rim, it displays a lovely nose of Asian spices, incense, tobacco, balsamic, and blackberry. On the palate it has exceptional depth, layers of spicy black fruit, excellent ripeness, and an elegant personality. Upon release it should continue to evolve for another 5-6 years and drink well through 2040." Best 2018-2040

91 points "91 points Wine Spectator The alluring aromas of vanilla, lilac and cedar give way to berry, vanilla and tobacco flavors in this expressive red. Features a supple texture, with firm underlying tannins, while balsamic acidity lends a spicy note to the finish. Drink now. (9/ 2013)" Best 2013-

93 points "Deep ruby. Complex, highly perfumed scents of dark berry compote, cherry pit, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Smoky, sweet and focused, offering vibrant black raspberry, bitter cherry and vanilla bean flavors that gain power with air. This doesn't act like a 12-year-old wine! Finishes smooth and very long, with lingering sweetness and gentle, fine-grained tannins. (10/ 2013)" Best 2013-2020
