2007 R. López de Heredia Rioja Reserva Viña Bosconia - Spain, La Rioja, La Rioja Alta, Rioja (8/27/2019)
By the glass pour from a freshly opened bottle...

This is a baby, but clearly well formed, with a proper balance of dusty red/black berry fruit, spice and cedar tones from the oak, and a lingering finish of fruit and dusty herbs that echo a trip down a dry country road. It's already enjoyable, and could be monumental with some cellaring.

Drank half a bottle last night and will try again tonight. I felt that it was a bit subdued, but it was well balanced. I'd have said that it was closed, except these wines generally don't have that issue. Maybe I just like the Tondonia better.

Your descriptors match very closely with my recollection of my quick taste in mid-October, David. Agree very long life ahead
