Sipping Fine Wine

Beautiful Ruby red with an elegant bouquet of sweet berry fruits, subtle spice with earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth with layers of flavors, berry/cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice lingering finish. Delicious!

13 years young. After a few hours the typical notes of a traditional Rioja flourish. Medium body with light tar and leather. Beautiful clear color.

2005 vintage. If you love old-school Rioja this is terrific value at about 33 euro.

Was shocked this was an ‘05. Tons of time left for this to age.

First time tasting the ‘05 Tondonia...excellent, more long term aging potential than the ‘04. Still substantial American oak and sweet fruit to integrate.

Dirt with a capital “D” - soft and well balanced sour cherries great funk! Nice and lively acidity!
