Lopez de Heredia, Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja 2005

Think Global Wines, Santa Barbara CA.

Carmine.  Red and savory and the acidity is focused and sharp.  Then a sous-vide of fleshiness: chinese 5-spice, copper and the raspberries from the shady side of the street.  As the wine opens the flesh seems to stretch and breathe, revealing a limpid, healthy body.  Long.  Now – 2025+.
