Resolved and drinking well, this was a pleasantly old school in its style. Dark stewed fruit, leather, turned earth, grandma closet on the nose. Good structure all around and an appropriate use of oak that doesn’t take away from the balance of the wine. Very enjoyable. — a month ago

The wines from Maria Lopez de Heredia are Riojan by the instruction manual and are also completely saturated with the soul of a little fire cracker of a woman so lovable I just want to be friends with her. Can we be friends?
My 2006 is a blend of elegantly restrained moderately extracted Tempranillo, Garnacha, and treated oak - flavors and aromas you can start to connect across the LDH portfolio.
Cherries and dried strawberries, a bed of mint and basil. On the palette, a drawback from fruit to high acid mineral salts. Then into darker cherries, prune, rosemary, mint, and saddle leather. Bravo. — 5 days ago
