Critic Review

Outer quote mark The 2011 Viña Tondonia “Reserva” from López de Heredia is a beautifully classical, complex and utterly refined young bottle of Rioja. The cépages this year is seventy percent Tempranillo, twenty percent Garnacha and five percent each of Graciano and Mazuelo. The wine tips the scales at an old school thirteen percent octane and offers up a pure and complex bouquet of raspberries, cherries, cloves, cigar smoke, brown spice tones, salty soil elements, American oak and an exotic topnote of dried eucalyptus. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still fairly tightly-knit in personality, with a good core of red fruit, fine soil signature, buried tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. Though this is approachable today with some extended decanting time, it is really still a young wine and I would be inclined to let it stretch its wings with another five or six years of cellaring. 92+ Points John Gilman, View From The Cellar
