2004 R. López de Heredia Rioja Reserva Viña Bosconia

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

Very ripe nose of plum, black cherry, tobacco, iron, soil, with little to no oak/vanilla/spice. The ripeness is apparent on the palate as well, which is quite soft, meaty, and lacking in definition. Works well with the right food, but I don't love it.

Not so good

Very good, but this bottle was also surprisingly evolved. Tasted like it was several years older than the vintage date, with secondary fruit and honey notes, wood elements and not a lot of tannin structure. Makes me wonder if this bottle is representative or not.
