One of the most traditional producers of Spanish reds, Lopez de Heredia crafted another amazing version of their flagship Vina Tondonia Reserva in an overall warm vintage of 2003.

Not a typo, the 2003 is the current release for Lopez de Heredia as they hold back the wine 10+ years until it is "ready to drink." Upon delivery in late April, our expert team of buyers rated the wine 93+ before the likes of Wine Spectator, Robert Parker and James Suckling published their reviews. Now a best buy in the Wine Spectator Insider and a 95 point rating from James Suckling, the 2003 Vina Tondonia could be the best vintage yet.

Rating
"The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence." The Wine Advocate, 94 Points

Wine maker notes
The Lopez de Heredia Rioja Reserva Tondonia 2003 is a beautiful red wine, that has long been a favorite at The Wine Buyer. For the past 135 years, wine society has worshiped these wines, and as Neil Martin from The Wine Advocate writes, Lopez de Heredia is the "apotheosis of traditional, classic wines: taut, fresh, bucolic, utterly charming and amazingly long-lived." Their traditional methods of crafting wine have withstood the test of time.
