    November 17, 2019 - This is an old style traditional Rioja. Only 13% alcohol the wine is fairly light but with a refined finish of tart cherry/plum and orange peel with hints of leather and tar. Burnished around the edges it is tart but elegant . Needs decant and food to shine.

    November 15, 2019 - Pleasant if a bit underwhelming - the fruit seemed a bit austere here without the brightness and freshness I usually expect from younger LdH, and the oak dominated the fruit a bit more than I usually like. Disappointing considering how good the '06 Bosconia was not too long ago.

    November 9, 2019 - Wine Tasting Group - Champagne, sorta - Nov. 9, 2019 (Brian's place): Dill aromas with green tobacco, dried cherries and herbs. Bright palate with flavors of fresh and dried cherries, earth, and herbs. Elegant moderately long finish. Young but the fruit is nicely set that makes this a pleasure to drink now.
