Tasting Notes For R. Lopez de Heredia Rioja Vina Tondonia Reserva 2011

R. Lopez de Heredia Rioja Vina Tondonia Reserva 2011 is a true gem from the renowned Rioja region. This wine showcases the mastery and tradition of the Lopez de Heredia family, known for their unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional Rioja wines.

Upon pouring, the wine reveals a beautiful ruby-red hue, hinting at its depth and complexity.

The nose is a tapestry of aromas, with notes of red berries, dried flowers, leather, and subtle vanilla. On the palate, it exudes elegance and finesse, with well-integrated tannins and a vibrant acidity that accentuates the layers of flavors. You'll find a symphony of red fruit, earthy undertones, and a touch of spice, all leading to a long, graceful finish. This Reserva is a testament to the time-honored winemaking traditions of Rioja and is ready to be savored now or aged further for those seeking an even more profound tasting experience.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 95:
A traditional beauty that effuses iron, warm earth and savory tobacco leaves, together with plums, spices and orange zest. This is juicy and still tight, with firm but savory tannins. Medium-weight and quite zesty in texture, as is the case with the other López de Heredia reds tasted this session. Drink now or hold.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:
The 2011 Viña Tondonia Reserva is darker and shows riper fruit, a rounder palate and some dusty tannins. A year of ripeness, concentration and tannin, the wine is powerful with the finesse of Tondonia. Tasting this next to the textbook 2010 Tondonia revealed how this has more muscle and a wider back and the 2010 epitomizes the finesse and elegance.
