    Rioja Wine. Everyone is asking so here you go, Episode #239, 5/21/2007, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 90 points

    (LOPEZ DE HEREDIA TONDONIA BLANCO RIOJA GRAN RESERVA) #4 COLOR-medium amber, viscous; NOSE-intriguing--petrol, burnt rubber, little hints of fresh peaches, green peas, vegetable oil (99% would not like); TASTE-intriguing sour lemon, great acidity, nice structure, has a sherry-esque flavor profile, Older white wine, nice nutmeg & walnuts, very different, I like, but many would think it was spoiled, likely past it's prime, should be drank/drunk? in next 2 years; AG-93; GV-90

    (Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva Blanco) Yellow flowers, petrol, caramel, beeswax, mineral, and a slight sweet brown sugar component. Very interesting nose and became increasingly more complex with air even taking on a floral bouquet complexity. Subtle and elegant with an incredible freshness and length. Great complexity and fruit. Incredible acidity and laser like focus. This is a baby on the palate yet pretty well developed on the nose. Excellent wine. Unique.

    (Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva Blanco) The best white from Spain by far. Yellow flowers, petrol, caramel, beeswax, mineral, and a slight sweet brown sugar component. Very interesting nose and became increasingly more complex with air even taking on a floral bouquet complexity. Subtle and elegant with an incredible freshness and length. Great complexity and fruit. Incredible acidity and laser like focus. This is a baby on the palate yet pretty well developed on the nose. Excellent wine. Unique.
