    R Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Reserva 2011

    Winery: Lopez de heredia

    A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo.

    The R Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Tinto Reserva has a vibrant red colour leading slightly towards amber. The wine bears a light fresh texture with notes of vanilla and dried berry aromas. The palate is rich, very dry, smooth, developed with firm tannins and good balance.

    "A traditional beauty that effuses iron, warm earth and savory tobacco leaves, together with plums, spices and orange zest. This is juicy and still tight, with firm but savory tannins. Medium-weight and quite zesty in texture, as is the case with the other López de Heredia reds tasted this session. Drink now or hold." - James Suckling, 95 points

    "The 2011 Vina Tondonia Reserva is darker and shows riper fruit, a rounder palate and some dusty tannins. A year of ripeness, concentration and tannin, the wine is powerful with the finesse of Tondonia. Tasting this next to the textbook 2010 Tondonia revealed how this has more muscle and a wider back and the 2010 epitomizes the finesse and elegance." - RP, 94 points
