9. Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja (2000)

« Prev Next » 9 of 10
Average price: $39.42 from 7 stores
This opens with just a touch of an acetic tone then turns layered with an earthy, leathery core of jellied raspberry fruit with a touch of vanilla and high tones of pepper, cedar, and a brisk saline note. With airing this gains nuanced floral and star anise tones as well as a smoky top note. In the mouth this is really bright with zesty, mouth cleansing acids framing slightly spicy yet intense strawberry fruit. There is an edge of Burgundian funk adding complexity on the lovely medium bodied mid-palate and a glassy mineral note pops out on the backend leading to a medium length finish with brisk strawberry and pomegranate tones. This would be killer with a fine Paella Valenciana! 89pts
