1997 was not a great year for Rioja. Chairman Guillermo de Aranzabal says, ‘This was the vintage that we set aside. We tasted it after bottling and were not impressed. We tried it three years later and were amazed. It could turn out to be one of the best 904s.’ It certainly typifies the image of 904 today: elegant, refined, fresh and gently spicy. Enjoy now.
