Wine Review: This wine is a classic Spanish styled wine. This dark purple wine opens with an aromatic bouquet. It offers a menthol like bouquet with faint hints of cherry. On the palate, this full bodied wine is very smooth as it enters the mouth and quickly dries out the palate. The fruit flavors are restrained black cherry. It also displays hints of coffee, oak, and black pepper. The finish is very dry, very tannic, and lingers for a really long time. This is a very good steak wine that could and would benefit from a little time in the cellar. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2004 offers the most concentrated Pesquera since the mid-1990s’ and will rank with the 1975, 1982, 1986 and 1994 vintages for longevity. Superb winemaking without overextraction has resulted in a rich wine with soft, integrated tannins. Pesquera’s typically mineral/gravel nose is already evident in youth, the oak nicely nuanced in complement.
