Such a pretty nose!! Some raisin/plum notes, some earth, some fruit. Medium body, earthy tannins, some acid, some fruit, and it lingers. Very balanced and delicious drinking. Dig in Tannins class: aging and tannins.

Tondonia’s little brother. Aromas of dark cherries and violets. A bit of menthol on the nose as well. Rioja blend (65% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacha, 5% Graciano & 5% Mazuelo). Dark cherry on the pallet. Hints of black licorice and Forrest Floor. Ruby color, silky and delicate. Almost “Pinot Noir” like in terms of texture. Unique.

Truly superb. Well balanced, not a single note of acidity. López de Heredia transports you to a different time, when things mattered. This wine matters.

Almost as good as its bigger brother but at half the price.

Lots of berry, vanilla and leather. Will definitely pick up more to have on hand.

Beautifully balanced aromas of black fruits, pipe tobacco, dill, and mint. Medium bodied, medium tannin and acid. The American oak is there but doesn’t take away from the juiciness of the wine. Time has been good to this.

Cherry, plum, vanilla, and roasted meats. Bright and quick on the finish. Medium acid, low tannin.
