Some funky good stuff. Light on its feet but stood up nicely with dinner.

Not an incredible vintage, but loads of earth and Berry and still best value in wine

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

Lots of secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors happening in this 9-year-old wine. Tobacco and toastiness are prominent, and the fruits have started to veer into prune territory over plums. Great find for the price.

Young and fresh with bright red fruit and vibrant acidity. A note of Ocean Spray cranberry juice and harmonious oak. Youthful.

Classic. Such a bargain for the entry level wine. Old skool.

Like walking through and damp field piled up with leaves and compost, the air filled with mist.
