R. López de Heredia Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva Viña Bosconia 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2001 vintage rated 93 points by International Wine Cellar: (80% tempranillo, 15% garnacha and 5% graciano and mazuelo) Red with an amber rim. Smoky redcurrant, dried cherry and floral aromas gain power with air, picking up notes of licorice and pungent herbs. Highly complex in the mouth, displaying sweet red berry and bitter cherry flavors along with a spicecake quality. The tannins are fully absorbed, allowing the sweet fruit to stand out. As complex as this is right now, it will reward many more years of cellaring.

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.

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.
