2004 Artadi Vinas de Gain Spain & Portugal 750 ml 4 $69.00
2004 Bodegas Alto Moncayo Aquilon Spain & Portugal RP96 750 ml 1 $199.00
The 1,000 case luxury cuvee, the 2004 Aquilon, was fashioned from the winery’s oldest vines and best material. Revealing nearly off the chart ripeness, richness, and intensity, it will undoubtedly be controversial, separating traditionalists from more progressive tasters, but I loved it. It will be interesting to see how this tour de force in winemaking ages. It is the vino equivalent of a Hummer four-wheel drive vehicle.
2005 Bodegas Sierra Cantabria El Bosque Spain & Portugal RP96 750 ml 1 $145.00
The Finca El Bosque label has become one of the benchmarks for the modern style of Rioja. The 2005 Finca El Bosque is sourced from its namesake vineyard encompassing 3.66 acres planted in 1973. It went through malolactic fermentation in new oak followed by 16 months in new, mostly French, oak. Inky purple-colored, it has a sexy nose of toasty new oak, truffle, espresso, mineral, blackberry, and plum. This leads to a muscular, tightly wound, layered wine with gobs of fruit and enough structure to evolve for a decade. Lengthy and pure, this superb effort will be at its best between 2018 and 2040.
2001 Miros De Ribera Riserva Spain & Portugal 750 ml 1 $79.00
2005 Numanthia Spain & Portugal RP92 1.5 L 1 $145.00
The 2005 Numanthia was aged for 19 months in new French oak. Opaque purple, it has a superb perfume of violets, mineral, wood smoke, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a firm, very structured wine with questionable balance. The finish is long but tannic. This is a wine that demands cellaring but purchasing it is a gamble.
2004 Pingus Flor de Pingus Spain & Portugal RP98 750 ml 3 $150.00
The sublime 2004 Flor de Pingus lacks the pure size and power of the 2005 but more than makes up for it with a regal elegance. The aromatics are already revealing considerable complexity while on the palate it is succulent, impeccably balanced, and mouth-coating. Give it another 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it from 2015 to 2034.
