We are certain that 904 is peerless amongst the fine wines of Spain in terms of value for money, and the maturity upon release makes this a no-brainer. Each new 904 vintage has been one of the most anticipated releases of the past few years, with demand far outstripping supply. The consistently high quality of these wines is second to none. The wine is only made in great vintages, undergoes four years of ageing in well-seasoned American oak barrels, and is only released when the winery think it is ready to drink, but this also has years of drinking ahead of it.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Reviewer Score Notes
Luis Gutierrez 96+ It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging potential. This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making. It was bottled in July 2015.
