As expected, even at 12yrs, this is very youthful. It’s rich without being heavy or dense. Cherry tobacco leaves accompanied by herbs de Provence and coconut/dill shavings on the nose. Crazy tart on the palate with high acidity. Mostly black cherry tart and fleshy cherry skin with a more herbal seasoning type finish. Give this time to evolve and add layers.

The 2007 ‘Vina Bosconia’ has a high percentage of Garnacho blended in (15%) with small portions Graciano and Mazuelo. The wine is another sensational effort from this storied estate, especially considering the challenges of the 2007 vintage. The nose opens with beautiful red fruits with blood orange and sage that are nicely woven into the nose. The palate unveils wonderful freshness and richness considering the challenges of the vintage. Pipe tobacco, leather, crushed mint and blood orange zest all connect with the sour red fruits. Beautiful now this has a long life ahead of it. Drink 2019-2035- 93

Always a pleasure to drink a Lopez De Heredia! Dried flowers galore with a solid core of dark red berries. Dusty tannins that really give the wine some character. Plenary more ahead for this one!

Fantastic nose of herbs and flowers, really youthful, cherry, cigar box, Grenache definitely impacts the flavor profile.

The nose is interesting with notes of pinot noir I know it has nothing to do with the composition of the wine but it is what it is .... ripe, rustic cherries, spices and cedar. In the mouth, the alcohol is moderately high, the tannins are silky and almost melted, the acidity is average. A really inviting taste with an attack on the red fruits, a well-maintained mid-palate and a long finish. Spices, tobacco, cedar but no vanilla thank you. Nice structure and long in the mouth. A very beautiful wine, an insolent youth with a nice concentration.
