Lot #706. R. López de Heredia Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Tondonia Tinto 1970

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 WA.
"The 1970 Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva has a wonderful bouquet that transports you directly to the vineyard: scents of gravel, wild mushroom, cherries and dusty attic. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannins and thrilling, almost rapier-like acidity. There are notes of decayed red berry fruit, sour lemon, rosemary and sage. The finish is rustic but so full of energy, with hints of orange peel on the finish." Wine Advocate #202, Aug 2012
Provenance: The Haro Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, chipped wax capsule, nicked, bin soiled, glue stained, damp stained, lightly mold stained, lightly scuffed, lightly torn label.
Lot Location: Orange County
