    (López de Heredia Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Bosconia) Wax capsule. No sediment of note. Left in the bottle at first, but as it showed slow evolution in the glass I decanted the rest and left it for an hour. Seemingly a pale hue when decanted, but a richer hue in the glass. Certainly a very mature hue though, mahogany with redder tones at its core. The nose is also very evolved, gamey, slightly suggestive of aged, sweetly tanned leather, with great complexity. There are also hints of liquorice and fennel, green olives and peppercorns, and dried plum fruit. A really full and broad texture on the palate maintained right through the middle, with faded tannin and fairly firm acidity, which helps to keep the finish nicely cleansed. Full, rather exciting tingle on the finish, and a really impressive length. Fresh and bright in its composition, with great acidity, lifting and freshening the dried fruit and roasted meat characters. Great substance on he finish. And it is very long too. Delicious.
