Professional Wine Reviews for Navarro Lopez Tempranillo Gran Reserva Old Vines 2004

Rated 88 by Robert Parker
The 2004 Old Vines Gran Reserva is 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in barrel. Deep crimson-colored, it gives up an aromatic array of cedar, earth notes, mineral, black cherry, and blackberry. Forward, succulent, and lengthy, it has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. All of these are good to very good values.

Additional Information on Navarro Lopez Tempranillo Gran Reserva Old Vines 2004

Winery: Navarro Lopez

Varietal: Tempranillo

The Tempranillo grape varietal is often referred to as Spain's 'noble grape', and has over the past century been planted in several countries around the world. Tempranillo grapes produce beautiful ruby red wines, packed full of fascinating flavors which range from intensely fruity, to deep, dark and spicy, holding notes of vanilla, tobacco and leather. Their black skins hold plenty of tannins, and as such, they are often blended with other more rounded or brighter wines, to balance out the character and produce some truly exceptional examples. Tempranillo grapes often fall to a wide range of diseases, and are greatly effected by climatic conditions. They tend to grow best, however, in areas with a mixture of heat and bright sunshine, and brisk breezes which can cool the vines.

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
