For a long time I bashed these wines as being thin and insipid. Joke's on me, Lòpez doesn't (and never will) give a fuck and these wines will always be their regal, timeless selves. Dried strawberries, palo santo, marjoram. Wait if you can!

An exemplary wine of the traditional ilk. Really graceful with both red and black fruit, serious American oak (think soap and cream and dill and coconuts) and loads of cherry juice.

Feels like an advanced bottle of the typically lovely abs more dramatic '94 Tondonia. Roasted, bretty, and closed.

21st anniversary of my 21st birthday: a 21 year old wine. And a delicious one, at that.
