2004 Bagordi Graciano Reserva Rioja

SKU #1143464 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2004 Bagordi Graciano Reserva is a bit more reticent (not surprising given the nature of the vintage). Deep purple in color, it offers up an alluring nose of exotic spices, incense, blackberry, and an earthy minerality. Firm on the palate with an excellent acid structure, this well-proportioned Graciano will deliver prime drinking from 2014 to 2024. 91+.  (6/2011)

K&L Notes

Located in the Rioja Baja town of Andosilla, Bagordi is making some of the region's very best wines. Having recently tasted this Graciano, I was reminded of the fact that the best wines from Rioja Baja absolutely can compete with the wines in Rioja Alta and Alavesa. This bottling comes from 75-year-old Graciano vines, and is very impressive indeed, showing the capacity for this grape variety to age gracefully (as anyone lucky enough to have enjoyed Contino's Graciano will concur). Meaty, dark fruited aromas lead to a big, brawny, purple-fruited palate, with great inner mouth aromas. Very, very good! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
