    (Lopez de Heredia Rioja Gran Riserva Vina Bosconia) It had great cigar aromas along with chocolate and that Spanish leather. Dalia found 'black olive,' and there was also earth and graham cracker in its meaty and long nose. The palate had earth, dry vanilla and cedary flavors, and this bottle was much better than the last bottle I had had. There were also great leather flavors and a touch of what I call 'Spanish egg.' The Rioja held its own amongst its more distinguished counterparts

    (Lopez de Heredia Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva) The first wine had a great nose that was deep and meaty with traces of caramel, carob, earth, tobacco, iron and rust. It got metallic quickly, but there was still hickory and gravel, prompting Jim to wonder if it was a Graves, but Ray was all over Spain and .old Rioja.. The wine held on the palate well and was sturdy and leathery with flavors of tobacco and chocolate. It was a good showing
