Gandia Hoya De Cadenas Reserva 2004 wine review by (PB)


This is 100% Tempranillo (pronounced temp-ra-NEE-oh) presenting with a purple hue and aromas of dried red fruit, pie cherry, and plum notes.

Palate--Surprisingly youthful with tasty cocoa and tight fruit waiting to burst open. Juicy core has plenty of life with another 3-5 years perhaps. Finishes with a nice fruit filled ending.
I paid $7 for this on sale--it normally runs around $10 and is a great value. Raise a glass to this Spanish bargain!

3/8/11 Opened same bottle 2 years later. After breathing their is a sensual explosion of ripe plum, cherry, and a subtle finish of black licorice.
