2005 Rioja Reserva "Vina Bosconia" (Lopez de Heredia)

Lopez de Heredia, Vina Bosconia Reserva, Rioja, Spain 2005

80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha (Grenache), 2% Mazuelo (Carignan), 3% Graciano

SILKY TANNIN WRAPPED IN VANILLA, SPICE AND DRIED CHERRY

Located in Haro, the capital city of La Rioja Alta, Lopez de Heredia is one of our world wine heros. Keeping very traditional and maintaining the classic style of Rioja of old, the single vineyard Bosconia is a perfect example of working with special grape selections, natural yeasts, long term oak aging and bottling without filtration. Everything is done by hand, chemical free and with great attention to detail and tradition. The vanilla spice is wrapped around birch, dried cherry and melon rind with strawberry and earth. A whisp of smoke comes through on the finish.

Serving Suggestion: A wine that will enhance anything it touches - try with grouper fajitas, anything jamon (pork) and chicken roasted with orange peel and thyme
