Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) Medium straw colored with green highlights, the wine has an excellent toasty nose, notes of vanilla and spice box, and green apple and pear aromas. Smooth-textured, ripe and lengthy.

    The 2004 Allende, a 100% Tempranillo cuvee, was barrel fermented in a mix of new and used French oak, remained in barrel for 13 months, and was bottled unfiltered. The wine is inky purple-colored and has a superb nose of pain grille, mineral, violets, cranberry, and blueberry. The youthful palate reveals layers of fruit, ripe tannin, and excellent balance. The wine merits another 3-4 years of bottle age and should drink well through 2020. Kudos to Finca Allende for a magnificent set of 2004 Riojas!
