TASTING NOTES

A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine.

R. López Heredia

Lopez de Heredia were one of the first three wineries in Rioja, and the very first in the prized spot of Haro in the heart of La Rioja Alta, the most lauded part of the region. Their wines are some of the finest Tempranillos in Spain.
