1981 Lopez de Heredia 'Vina Tondonia' Gran Reserva Rioja
An excellent pair with all kinds of meats.
Grapes: 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 1981 Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva has a vibrant nose reminiscent of coeval Burgundy, with scents of citrus peel, orange rind, singed leather and a Tuscan delicatessen. The palate has a penetrating orange peel and tart cherry entry with potent earthy notes at its core. It is supremely well-balanced with an energetic finish underpinned by crisp dry tannins. This wonderful Rioja is drinking perfectly now and will age effortlessly."
