2004 Artadi "Pagos Viejos" Rioja (375ml) (Previously $90)

SKU #1504036 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Pagos Viejos is inky purple with a sublime nose of pain grille, spice box, cherries, raspberries, and wild blue fruits. This is followed by a dense, plush, full-flavored, sexy wine with perfect balance and remarkable elegance for a wine so powerful. Although it can be enjoyed now, it deserves a minimum of a decade of cellaring after which it should drink well through 2047. Kudos to Bodegas Artadi for this tour de force! (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2007)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Classic in color, and backed by aromatics of lavender, graphite and pure blackberry. This is not overly weighty, as the acidity keeps it pointed and pure. There’s a lot of elegance and balance to this wine; a perfect example of how to blend multiple vineyards into one excellent whole. *Cellar Selection* (MS) Inner quote mark (9/2007)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Wild, pungent aromas of red and dark berries, candied cherry, blood orange, dark chocolate, clove and cinnamon, with notes of vanilla and fresh rose. Very firmly built, with impressively deep, sweet red fruit flavors that are almost liqueur-like in their power and breadth. Intensely spicy and sweet on the long, succulent finish, the tannins almost completely absorbed by the luscious fruit. There's no Grandes Anades in '04, so this release includes all of the fruit that would otherwise go into that high-end bottling. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2006)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Powerful. This mouthfilling red is thick with roasted plum, coffee and beef flavors. Muscular tannins dominate now, but floral and mineral notes emerge on the finish. Has impressive concentration and good balance. (TM, Web-2007) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very, very youthful - this practically smells of the fermentation vat. Very lively and lifted and dancing - great refreshment value. Slightly dry, tight, fine tannins on the finish. Very zesty and a mile from blockbuster. Really quite a ballet dancer. 18.5+/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2006)
