“Time flies, and the 904 for sale is already the 2009 Gran Reserva, as they didn't bottle it in 2008. They only bottle their top wines in very good and excellent vintages, so there will be a 2010 and 2011 but no 2012, 2013 or 2014. This super classical cuvée showcases the wines from Haro, silky and elegant after extended aging in oak and a good future in bottle. 2009 was a powerful vintage, ripe but with good balance. The blend is approximately 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, fermented in stainless steel with a 78-day natural malolactic. The aging was in four-year-old American oak barrels crafted by their own coopers; the wines aged from April 2010 to April 2014. During that time, the wine was racked every six months, to be finally bottled in November 2014. This is usually my favourite wine from the portfolio, where the balance between aging and youth reaches its highest point. It's developed but retains some fruit character, plenty of spices and balsamic aromas. The palate is polished but has some clout, with clean, focused flavours and a long, spicy and tasty finish. This represents good value for the quality it delivers.”
