Profile

The classic Faustino Gran Reserva Rioja is an immediately recognizable wine, with its opaque, stony-textured bottle that protects the fragile, well-aged liquid inside from harmful light rays. 

The Gran Faustino 2004 Gran Reserva is a 40th anniversary homage to the first release of the standard Faustino I Gran Reserva bottling. It's fortunate that 2004 was rated as an "excellent" vintage, allowing the winery to preserve a top selection of wines for this special bottling! The Tempranillo, Graciano, and Mazuelo (aka Carignan) that went into the final blend were aged for at least 38 months in oak; the wine was then aged in bottle until getting fresh corks and gold labels that were specially designed for the release.

Critic awards

This deep-garnet-colored wine has aromas of blackberry, black currant and olive tapenade. It is soft at first sip, and then rugged tannins build on the palate, ferrying flavors of dark plum, pomegranate, cocoa powder, thyme and orange zest that wend their way to a surprisingly bright finish. Drink through 2035.

— 96 points, Wine Enthusiast

An extremely well-aged and understated Rioja, showing discreet complexity with plums, oranges, leather, dusty red berries and minerals. Juicy and bright on the palate with a zesty nature to the berry and orange citrus. Silky, taut tannins and a long yet elegant finish. Lots of finesse here, with almost pinot etherealness.

— 95 points, James Suckling
