Vienna, VA (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
Classe Wines is pleased to announce that it has received a shipment of 2004 Odysseus Venedos de Ithaca Priorat and is making it available for sale to the public in limited quantities. This high-quality red wine is from the Odysseus winery’s 2004 vintage, which is one of the best that it has produced in recent years. The current inventory at Classe Wines represents a chance for American wine collectors and consumers to obtain this high-quality red wine and have it delivered to them directly.
2004 Odysseus Venedos de Ithaca Priorat has a quality that becomes evident when you first inhale its aroma after pouring it from the glass. The aroma includes gentle floral notes combined with cocoa and blackcurrants. The taste starts off tightly wound, but when it reaches the middle of your palate opens up to reveal a delicious blend of sweetness and fleshiness. The taste includes a note of dark berries, which pairs well with a smooth texture. The wine’s balance is enhanced with the effect of the fruit flavors on the strong tannins, which give the wine an uplifting finish, which is when its fine mineral taste becomes apparent. Experts have shown high regard for this wine, giving it a score of 92 from International Wine Cellar and a score of 88 from Wine Advocate.
This fine Spanish red wine is produced using a variety of grapes, which includes 35 percent Carinena grapes along with another 35 percent of Carnacha grapes. The remainder of the wine consists of 20 percent Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with the final 10 percent consisting of a mixture of Caladoc, Syrah, Touringa Nacional, and Petit Verdot. The combination of these varieties are what is responsible for this wine’s youthful color which is very different from the colors that many other red wines have.
The Odysseus winery is located in the Priorat region of Spain within the province of Catalonia. The winery is owned by Jos Puig and is operated by his daughter Sylvia, who has shown strong dedication to the “new age” winemaking methods that were initiated by her father. The unconventional style of this winery is perhaps reflected best in the Trojan Horse statue that can be found on top of the cellar.
The current inventory at Classe Wines represents an opportunity to acquire this premium Spanish red wine at an affordable price. It is good for consuming now and is projected to only increase in quality as it ages. It can be ordered for a bottle price of $67.95, a half-case price of $399.95, and a case price of $790.94.
