Perhaps this is a wine that is a bit of an acquired taste. Quite a distinctive rose starting with the orange-y/brownish tinge and prominent raisinated grape, almost Port-ish aroma, and nutty and bone dry on the palate with a nice acidic finish. The blend was of the 3 red rioja grapes: 20% Tempranillo, 60% Garnacha and 20% Viura. Barrel-aged for 4 and a half years, being racked twice a year and fined with fresh egg whites (from the producer's website). 12% alcohol.

Wonderful velvety texture, great depth of fruit, finely balanced, in the flush of youth but with a great future ahead, should you choose to age this wine.

Bright red. Complex aromas of cherry, sassafras, dried rose and pungent herbs, with a gentle vanilla note. Fleshy, sweet and graceful red fruit flavors are firmed by a bitter cherry quality and pick up dusty tannins with air. Finishes on a juicy note... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2000 Lopez De Heredia Rioja Vina Tondonia Reserva 750ml
