98 points from the Wine Advocate! They say, "The 2004 Costers de Vinas Viejas is 50% Carinena, 48% Garnacha, and 2% Merlot aged for 16 months in new French oak. Deep purple, the aromas are other-worldly with truffle, tar, graphite, kirsch, and wild blueberry among the array of scents leaping from the glass. Flamboyant and opulent, the wine has remarkable richness and depth of flavor leading to a 60-second finish. Drink this hedonistic effort over the next 10-12 years. 2/28/2007" 93 points from the Wine Spectator Insider: "Elegance and intensity mark this alluring red. The raspberry and cherry flavors are ripe, fresh and expressive, with floral and mineral notes. Ripe, firm tannins. Drink now through 2015." (9/6/2006) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Room-filling aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry jam, sandalwood, potpourri, yellow rose and minerals, with hints of white pepper and exotic tobacco. Incredibly sweet and lush, the deep, powerful red fruit flavors brightly accented by fresh acidity and tangy minerality. Finishes with fully absorbed tannins, impeccable balance and superb purity and intensity. Another outstanding wine from this exceptional vintage." (Sep/Oct 2006) (Due in February) Due to limited availability, there is a 2 bottle limit per customer.
