2003 Benjamin Romeo Contador - 99 pts!
The 2003 Contador (a meager 200 bottles for the American market) was sourced from three tiny parcels ranging in age from 65-80 years. It was fermented in new French barriques, aged for 12 months, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The result is a spectacular wine with a remarkably expressive nose of pain grille, lead pencil, spice box, espresso, black currants, and wild blueberries that roars from the glass. The opulent palate is mouth-coating, thick, and full-flavored with the structure well-concealed by the masses of fruit. This legend in the making, while irresistible now, should evolve slowly over 2-3 decades much like a first growth Bordeaux and still be drinking at age 50. RP
