Lopez de Heredia Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2003

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy and funky at first with eggshell and soil notes, this blossoms slowly with raspberry and wild strawberry tones accented with dried citron peel. Light and fresh in the mouth, this shows some nutty oak up front before laying down a pure, crisp mid-palate replete with crystal clear raspberry fruit. This is high acid without being acidic and displays rare elegance and finesse with its soft and rich yet bright mouthfeel. 93pts

An elegant and refined style of Rioja - earthy, dried red fruit on the nose, with a medium-body and notes of dried herbs, dried red fruits, and savory spice on the palate.

Blend is as follows: Tempranillo 80%, Garnacha 15%, Graciano 3% and Mazuelo 2%. Pale in color, easy to drink, hints of strawberry, slightly metallic aftertaste.

One of may favorite wines that delivers quality year in and year out. These guys don't f&^k aroudn -- making their wines only in prominent vintages and releasing only when they feel it is appropriate. Within these regards, they are the most serious wine makers on the planet. Now for the wine: What I love so much about Lopez de Hererdia is the bottle diversity and the way it changes as it stays open. There is always a pretty valencia orange nose, laced around this highly unique pomegrante essence that seeps out into your sinuses. Even more so, are the racy and firm Burgundian textures that open up and become alive. This is what wine is supposed to be.

Coming from the family-run and very traditional Lopez de Heredia estate, this wine has notes of strawberry, blood orange, pomegranate, coconut, and exotic spices. Viña Bosconia is produced from the juice of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano, aged for three years in American oak barrels. The winery is one of the few in Rioja still owned by its founding family.
