Keeping the water from their winter reserves, enabled the grapes to reach the end of their cycle despite a drought during the summer, resulting in a high quality vintage of La Rioja Alta. This wine was aged in American oak barrels (made in-house) for four years, which has undoubtedly created a certain depth and complexity.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Tim Atkin 96/100 Tim Atkin Rioja Report. Reflecting the excellence of the vintage, as well as its power, this is the latest in a superb run of 904 Gran Reservas. Combining Tempranillo with 10% Graciano for added backbone and grip, it's a wine that is (as ever) supremely drinkable on release, but will reward further cellaring. Spicy, aromatic and enticing, with the vanilla sweetness of American oak, savoury tannins and a core of stylish, balsamic-edged fruit. Traditional Rioja with a modern accent.
