excellent red table wine for the price
Wow. Total grenache fest. Aromas of creme de cassis, earth, truffles, and garrigue. Flavors of blackberry, currant, white pepper, leather. Silky, silky texture. BUY! For under $10?
Smooth and uncomplicated. A tad bit more body than a pinot noir.
External Reviews for R. Lopez de Heredia Vina Bosconia Reserva Rioja
Medium red. Ripe red fruit, flowers and spices on the nose, with a smoky nuance emerging with aeration; very fresh for this notoriously hot vintage. Concentrated but not at all heavy, with intense red berry and floral pastille flavors and a deeper note of singed plum. The finish is bright and high-pitched, with lingering cherry and raspberry flavors and a hint of candied licorice.
The 2003 Vina Bosconia has another enticing bouquet: hints of cooked meat, hickory, peat and rosemary that is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with firm dry tannins and a poised, lifted earthy finish with touches of soy and sea salt on the aftertaste. This deserves several more years in bottle. Drink 2018-2030+.
