Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Last night with close friends we opened the 2006 R. Lopez de Heredia Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva. A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo.

On the nose there was cherries, plum, fig, strawberry, balsamic, black pepper, herbal notes, forest floor.

On the palate I find cherry, plum, raspberry, black pepper, leather, anise, vanilla, spice, tobacco and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium + fine elegant well rounded tannins tha leave you with a long red fruit earthy finish. This is a beautiful wine that still has many years ahead of it. I hope everyone's weekend was full of sharing and happiness. Please stay healthy and safe innthe week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Nearly 0 sediment! Nose of tart cherry, fresh tobacco, spring flower pollen in warm breeze. Palette is very frontal with striking acid that lingers through a long finish. Shows more tart fruit and other interest. Some have noted this needs more time and I tend to agree. — a day ago

Upon opening, the aromatics had a distinct petrol/Riesling like flair to it. After 30mins of being open, it got fleshier and blossomed. A somewhat maderized/oxidized black cherry and rhubarb spice on the nose with a whiff of fino sherry. Palate is ever changing with tangerine, roasted orange marmalade, some sort of Italian herbs, and brown sugar coated raspberries. Excellent acidity here. Juicy without being flabby or sharp. I suggest letting this breathe an hour or so before consuming. — 2 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2006

Kick off wine at Old Rioja Wine Dinner, gorgeous nose with white flowers and even honey, the palette is completely different: very dry, acidic, with hints of brioche and almonds. A real mind-bender which keeps you from putting your glass down as it keeps messing with your head. Cheers. — 9 days ago
