Rioja Viña El Pison, Bodegas Artadi 2004
The 2004 El Pison stands out from its peers. It has a deeper color than the 2007 with a splendid nose that jumps from the glass. Notes of espresso, balsamic, Asian spices, pain grille, mineral, and black cherry lead to a velvety, mouth-filling, deep wine that effortlessly combines elegance with power. It should easily drink well for another 30-40 years. It simply does not get any better.

Interesting dried herbs on the nose with a great spread of ripe black fruits on the palate. Juicy, bloody, full and rich - much less subtle than the Pagos Viejas. But a big impact.
