Sku: 1849933*

70% Tempranillo 15 % Graciano 10% Garnacha 5%Mazuelo

Tasting notes
Deep garnet colour. Powerful and complex aromas of ripe red and black fruit, foral notes, graphite, toffee, chocolate, and a well integrated oak infuence. The taste is fresh, intense and expressive, with soft tannins and a long fnish with lots of smooth, ripe fruit.

 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (Feb 2014)
Talk about a consistent wine. The past four vintages of 4 Varietales have all scored 91 points. This version opens with dense, jammy blackberry and raspberry aromas. The mouthfeel is healthy and full of tannic grip, while flavors of blackberry, prune, mocha and tobacco set up a chewy finish with rubbery tannins and length. Drink through 2023.
 Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2013)
This red is plush yet graceful, with ripe plum, espresso and vanilla flavors over moderate tannins, finishing with smoke and spice. Tender and balanced. Drink now through 2016. -TM
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Dec 2013)
The 2010 Coleccion Vivanco 4 Varietales is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, 10% Garnacha and 5% Mazuelo aged without racking for 20 months in oak barrels and has an explosive nose of violets and blueberries complicated by sweet spices and a mineral sensation. It looks like the blends work better than the separate varieties, showing good complexity and balance in a palate with sweet, polished tannins, great purity of flavors and a long, pleasant aftertaste. Superb! Drink 2014-2018.
Four varieties-tempranillo, graciano, garnacha and mazuelo-meld in a ripe, cool, harmonious Rioja Alta wine, its bright acidity and gentle tannins woven into silky red fruit. While the texture is supple, the flavors are youthfully intense, needing several hours in a decanter or several years in bottle to show themselves completely.

Wine maker notes
The Coleccion wines from Dinastia Vivanco are limited-production wines that capture the essence of traditional Rioja grape varieties and their cultivation in extraordinary terroirs. The personality of each wine is distinguished on the label by an original piece of art from the family’s collection on display at the museum. This single-vineyard, powerful wine with complex aromas of ripe red and black fruits accented by florals is backed by well-integrated hints of toffee and cocoa. Fresh and expressive on the palate with great acidity and soft tannins, this blend of 4 native varietals is packed with smooth, mature fruit through the long finish. Aged in new French oak barrels for 20 months following vinification in large French oak barrels, this wine is blended before bottling.

Technical notes
70% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, 10% Garnacha, 5% Mazuelo

Food pairing
Best served just below room temperature as an excellent match for sirloin medallions with grilled apples and a bittersweet sauce, as well as any roast or grilled red meats.
