Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Good memories from Haro! Had this with steak in New York. Color is deep ruby. Nose is red fruit (strawberry) vanilla tobacco leather. Strawberry floral cream. Taste of the same with pepper. Needed some time to open up - but eventually got this beautiful long spicy finish! — 11 days ago

Tangy, zinging acid, creamy palate. Herbaceous, slight hint of ox. Singular wine and lovely with garlic-accented dishes. — a month ago

Viña Bosconia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

For many years my friends & I subsisted on a fairly steady diet of Lopez, occasionally dipping into other producers but always coming back to Lopez. As prices have slowly risen & our tastes have evolved our diet is more varied,but this bottle reminds me of why Lopez was true North for us. The Bosconia bottlings were I think always considered the lesser to Tondonia, & priced accordingly, but here 15 yrs of age really shines: all sorts of crushed red fruits, natural vanilla stalk, and tree bark. Such length & beautiful concentration,with fine tannins folded into that vanilla cushion of all those years in barrel. Less of the tomato concentration I find in Tondonias, to its benefit. Perhaps my only caveat-but it’s more like a differential-is a moderately more simple flavor profile, with less of the lingering & tertiary flavors I remember from Tondonias. Also, so full of energy & still fresh. God, how I love this wine. Drank during a Mets loss, which makes it even more impressive given the game didn’t sour my experience of it — 2 months ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2001

Off the list at Chambers in NYC. Deep tawny color. Barely translucent. Great nose. Notes of black cherry, mocha, some wood and a nice spice. Well integrated tannins, silky fruit and a good structure all in balance. Pretty darn good wine. — 24 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1995

Light body, resolved tannins, still vibrant. Complex palate with dried fruits, sweet oak, earth, and funk. Good, but like the last bottle, a bit sour. — 2 months ago

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

2013 vintage. Agree with many of the posters on here. Very solid for the price but unspectacular. Pretty fruit notes with plenty of structure and balance. Would purchase again. — 2 months ago
