R-Lopez-de-Heredia-Vina-Tondonia-Reserva-Rioja-2005

R. Lopez de Heredia, Vina Tondonia Reserva Rioja , 2006

“Cigar box, cedar and balsamic notes frame cherry, raisin and licorice flavors in this lean, firm red. Displays grip and focus, with firm tannins and orange peel acidity. The spicy finish is fresh and long. A traditional style.”
- Wine Spectator (91 points)

“If this old-school winery has a signature wine, it’s Tondonia. Hailing from the hot 2003 vintage, this smells rooty, with tobacco, cedar and subtle balsamic notes that only a few wines share, for instance the occasional Barolo. High acidity is keeping this vital, while flavors of tomato, currant and raspberry come with caramel and chocolate notes. The finish, which is subtle and long, is a highlight.”
