    September 2, 2019 - I had great expectations of this wine but was very disappointed particularly after the 1994 Tondonia GR I had last week. The wine was unidimensional, somewhat overoaked, lacking in the combination of delicacy and substance I was looking for. Those of us who had the Wine Society’s bottling of I believe the same wine would I think be extremely disappointed.

    August 1, 2019 - In a great spot, even with a PnP. A long life ahead if stored well, but also enjoyable right now. Classic old school Rioja.

    July 22, 2019 - Utan tvekan ett av de bästa viner jag druckit!

    Här ryms både frukt, (mjuk) kraft, elegans, längd och komplexitet.
    Färgen är ljust rubinröd med skiftningar i tegel.
    En inbjudande och utvecklad doft med röd frukt (körsbär), torkad frukt, vanilj, läder, tobak och lite ceder.
    I munnen är det silkeslent, knappt medelfylligt, elegant med mjuka, runda tanniner, typiskt bra syra, och bra längd med en ren, fin, sakta avklingande avslutning. Smaken är fortfarande fruktigt generös men med balans och nyanser.
    Jag tror det här håller ihop bra minst fem år till, men det är ett toppvin nu och det är alltid svårt att sia, särskilt om framtiden!
    93-94 p. Nu får jag se fram mot 2004:an om ett antal år.

    June 21, 2019 - More integrated than my first bottle five years ago. Deep color. Cherries and red berries. Some oak, but not overpowering as some have indicated. This appears at its prime with a few more years left.
