Tasting Notes

"The 2004 Rioja Gran Reserva from Bodegas Akutain is a lovely the elegant side of Rioja Alta fruit, as it offers up a complex and utterly classic bouquet of plums, raspberries, cigar smoke, an impressively complex base of soil tones, cloves and toasted coconut. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with a great core of fruit, impeccable balance, lovely complexity and a very long, bright and classy finish. Just a great bottle of old school Rioja! 2016-2035+."

The Producer

Bodega Akutain

Bodega Akutain’s history begins in the early 1970’s with the small family property’s founder, Juan Peñagaricano Akutain. Señor Akutain forged bonds with the families behind some of the Rioja region’s most storied traditionalist estates, including CVNE and La Rioja Alta.

After many years spent visiting the cellars, studying local vineyard techniques, and drinking every bottle of Rioja he could lay his hands on (all the while saving his earnings), Akutain was ready to plant his own vineyards.

He spent a few years searching for the perfect site and finally, in 1975, he found his dream property located just west of the village of Haro, the epicenter of Rioja.
