The La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2005 is an outstanding red wine that shows layers of complex flavor. You will love every part of this wine, from the bouquet to the finish. Beginning with the bouquet, energetic notes of almonds, mint chocolate, vanilla, and roasted coffee mingle with a hint of jammy fruit. These delicious notes introduce the palate, which is bright and nicely balanced, with sweet tannins. This red wine is perfect for enjoying now, but it will also reward those who let it cellar for a few more years.

Taste SummaryAlmond, Chocolate, Coffee, Mint, Vanilla
