    May 18, 2019 - Looking great. Still some time to go on it, but excellent now. Herbal and earthy, with dried cherry on the finish.

    February 14, 2019 - Still too young. The nose is there, but it's still tight through the middle in the way most better 2004 Rioja still is at this point. Thought some crusty lamb shoulder chops with piperade would help crack it open, but no. Going to be unreal when it finally opens up in about three to five years, but I wouldn't touch it until then.

    February 11, 2019 - Liked this more than the '04 Tondonia I opened the night before. A bit more open, with the fruit and floral notes more expressive, and a slightly softer feel to the palate without the tannic edge the Tondonia had. I love the balance and finesse in both wines, though right now like this more.

    February 10, 2019 - My first bosconia, but didnt take detailed notes. Atypical for rioja but nice nonetheless. Kinda understand the burgundy connection... Didnt improve on second day.
