Tasting Notes
95 POINTS "Outstanding" from Robert Parker in Wine Advocate.
Luxuriously bright, deep cherry colour with aromas of wild berries, plum pudding and delicate touches of spices from the earth (rosemary, thyme, lavender) and the retama flower, hot spices, tobacco and cacao. On the palate, the body is opulent, elegant, warm and well-rounded thanks to soft integrated tannins.
Alcohol 14.0% vol.
Food Grilled or roast meat dishes, rich game or other powerful flavours.
Our Comments
Only 13,400 bottles produced. I think Robert Parker says it all:

PARKERS NOTES: "The 2004 Cyclo is even better than the 2003, more expressive aromatically, firmer and more structured on the palate. Purchasers of the 2004 should be prepared to cellar it for 5-7 years. It will drink well through 2025. If I were a budding wine collector with limited discretionary income, this is the type of wine that I would be laying down."
