2005 López de Heredia "Viña Bosconia" Reserva Rioja

SKU #1281989 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine. (LG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The texture to this mature red is so brilliant with soft and silky tannins that are so fine. Full body, with plum, cedar, and chocolate character. Hints of spice. Inner quote mark (7/2017)

K&L Notes

Lopez de Heredia has a well-earned reputation as the stalwart traditionalist of Rioja, along the lines of Mascarello in Barolo, Mayacamas in Napa Valley, or de Montille in Burgundy. What is arguably lost in all the attention paid to traditional winemaking, wine aging, and craft, is that Lopez de Heredia pioneered the single vineyard wine in Rioja, a tradition they still honor with each of their wines. These wines hail from single vineyards -- well-sited, glorious single vineyards. Viña Bosconia Reserva is always more red fruited, with mid-palate intensity and acidity bouncing off each other in a lip-smacking display of impeccable balance.
