2004 was one of the modern-day great vintages in Rioja. It seems like yesterday, but ten years have already gone by. That year Viña Real got its own winery, an impressive building designed by Bordeaux architect Philippe Mazières just behind Contino (which at the time was 50% owned by CVNE; now they have a majority stake) where the wine fermented 100% in inox for the first time. However, this vintage marks a return to a more classical style. At the time, the Gran Reserva category had almost disappeared from the Spanish market and these wines were exported, so volumes were not high; they fermented 15, 000 liters of Gran Reserva. It was bottled in May 2008. That year Facebook was launched, Green Day rocked the world with their songs “American Idiot” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” and people like Marlon Brando, Ronald Reagan, Johnny Ramone and Ray Charles disappeared. Spain was marked by the worst national terrorist attack ever; during Madrid's morning rush-hour on March 11, a date that will remain in Spain's collective memory, four bombs exploded simultaneously in four different trains killing 191 people. The 2004 Viña Real Gran Reserva is young, but fine and elegant, quite fruit-driven, the oak is well integrated, with spicy notes. The palate is medium-bodied, with enough stuffing to develop for a long time. A modern classic. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024.

Firm and a bit austere, this red shows depth and drive, with chewy tannins supporting plum, tobacco, licorice and mineral flavors. The structure is solid but the wine remains fresh. Maturing now, this has a long life ahead. Drink now through 2024. 4,000 cases made.
