"The 2005 Imperial Gran Reserva is firing on all cylinders. Smoked cured meats, balsamic notes of beeswax, antique shop and incense define the complex and elegant nose. The medium-bodied palate reveals an impressively powerful wine which manages to feel light on its feet. I needed to swallow a bit of wine to make sure; yes, it’s truly elegant and classic. This is a great wine, which transports you to the old Grand Reservas of yesteryear. It delivers great quality at a great price...95" WA 12/13
After the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013 announced CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva 2004 as the #1 wine of 2013, we sold through over 50 CASES of this highly coveted wine in under an hour! If you missed out on the 2004, then don't wait on the newly released 2005 vintage, it already has the makings of a Top 100 candidate for 2014.
The accolades are starting early on this powerhouse release from CVNE, recently reviewed in the Wine Advocate with a 95 point score and pegged as delivering "Great Quality at a Great Price", now is the time to lock in on CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva 2005. The longer you wait the less chance you'll be able to secure this wine as it's already starting out the year with stronger praise than the #1 CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva 2004!!
This wine is due to our warehouse Spring 2014, so while you can't drink it this weekend you can stake your claim early on this hot new release from CVNE! Trust me you're going to be happy in years to come on this one.
All My Best,
