Tasting Note:

Restrained and briny on the nose with crisp red fruit and a fine boned, bristling structure on the palate, the 2006, after an hour, fleshes out on the mid-palate proffering sweet, succulent flavours of fresh red cherry, blackberry, strawberry and raspberry with notes of earth, leather and bitter cocoa. Time will help resolve a certain strictness in the wine and yet it is still dazzling now for its ferrous, salty finish, that has become a hallmark of Tondonia. This is authentic traditional Rioja at its very best and will delight purists who seek authenticity, character and age-worthiness in their wines.
