A favorite of critics (the 2007 vintage was rated: 93 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 points by James Suckling, 93 points by Wine and Spirits), R. López de Heredia wines are some of the best that Rioja has to offer.
"Tasting note: This wine has evolved perfectly showing a deep ruby colour with shades of orange. Its nose is persistent, full bodied and showing a lot of mature fruit, being dominated by the Tempranillo grape. Its taste is round, smooth, fresh, full of body and persistent.
Gastronomy: Perfect with roasted and highly flavoured meats, lamb and game" --Bodegas R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia
