Much mellower palate, ample acidity and more fruit depth and concentration than the Bosconia. Classic in style, this is quintessential LdH Tondonia Reserva. Maybe a bit more fruity because of the 2003 vintage conditions were so hot, but only if you are familiar with other vintages can you really pick that up.

Lift from an attractive touch of VA, married to very high-toned, still quite fresh Tempranillo aromas & flavors. Got that core of sea saltiness that even LDH reds seem to always display. Old-fashioned and not offering apologies...superb! #lopezdeheredia #tempranillo #riojaalta — 4 years ago
Most body and tannin,higher altitude that comes through in a more structured palate. Bosco = forest, bottled in the 5th year and is only a Reserva, though a Gran Reserva has been made a few times.
Cinnamon, Damson, red fruits, cherry with a brilliant brightness. Excellent acidity and firm, dry tannins that need a little more time in bottle to mellow. Though enjoyable now so if you decide to drink, decant for at least an hour.

90% viura 10% Malvasia
Nutty, high acid, roasted lemon, herbs and strong mineral character. A little oxidized note but not too much, the concentration is really profound in this vintage in all facets this is a powerhouse of a white that should age quite well.
Clean and long finish, bright, crisp and fresh with a lingering crystalline taste of citrus and sea salt.
