2003 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Gravonia" Crianza Blanco Rioja

SKU #1120561 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full gold. A perfumed, complex bouquet evokes dried pit fruits, honey and toasted nuts, with floral and beeswax accents adding complexity. Deep, fleshy and broad, offering chewy peach, pear skin and candied almond flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Closes with firm grip and very good persistence, leaving floral and honey notes behind.  (9/ 2012)

91 points Wine & Spirits

 A mild and creamy 2003, this shows the heat of the vintage in a gentle peppery burn. There are cool cellar tones to keep it balanced, the wine’s flavors gaining freshness, building toward lemon custard and cham­omile scents as it opens with air.  (12/ 2012)
