A stunning vintage of this Rioja classic. Ripe and concentrated, yet cool and delicate with tons of fine tannin. Lots of earthy, autumnal Burgundy-like nuances, as well as notes of violets and plums. Long, complete finish.
2006 was a hard year to follow, even if 2007 was a great year in Rioja and exceptional for López de Heredia. The 2007 Viña Bosconia Reserva shows a little tannic, fulfilling the reputation for being a more rustic wine than Viña Tondonia. There are notes of chocolate-covered cherries and hints of forest floor. Maybe with a little more time in bottle? (LG)
This wine grows at a south-facing estate vineyard along the Ebro River, one kilometer away from the family’s cellars in Haro. The vine age averages 40 years; the blend includes tempranillo (80 percent) with garnacha and a little graciano and mazuelo. Aged for five years in American oak barrels, then in bottle at the winery before release, it’s a completely Spanish red, friendly and jaunty, spicy in its delicate fragrance of tart cherries and strawberries. The pleasure of drinking a 12-year-old wine with so much energy and freshness makes the $40 price seem like a steal.
