Wine Advocate 91 points - Manuel de la Osa is a renowned chef with one Michelin star at his restaurant Las Rejas. The 2004 Manuel de la Osa is composed of 40% Syrah, 30% Graciano, 10% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Merlot. The wine spent 12 months in French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it reveals a complex bouquet of toast, pencil lead, spice box, blueberry compote, and black currant. Layered, ripe, and sweet, the wine is made in a forward, meaty style with lots of chewy fruit and substantial flavors. While it may evolve for 1-2 years, there is no reason to delay gratification.
