Lopez is the finest producer of traditional, age-worthy Rioja. Their wines are legendary and still made the way they were when the winery was founded over 130 years ago. As is their tradition, the '04 Tondonia Reserva was released 10 years after the harvest.andnbsp;A rarity in Rioja, Lopez only bottles fruit from vineyards that they own and farm.andnbsp;The farming is organic and the winemaking is super old-school. Native yeast, spontaneous ferments and then elevage in old barrels for extended periods of time. This Reserva is made up of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, and 10% Graciano and Mazuelo. It was aged 6 years in barrel and then 4 years in bottle before it was released. To be able to buy a wine of this quality and pedigreeandnbsp;for under $50 is just remarkable.

Always a good bet. This one was slightly more reticent than others I've had recently, as well as having more aged/secondary characteristics. Still an amazing wine for the price.
