The 2010 Viña Tondonia Reserva may be the most impressive release I have yet to taste of this classic release from R. López de Heredia. It is always one of the best valued wines from anywhere in the world, and there is no exception in this vintage. The wine starts off with gorgeous aromas of dried cherries and plums which are laced with spices, leather, vanilla, cigar box, dried florals, wild herbs and orange zest nuances that all come together and emerge from the glass. This palate is medium-full and structured with beautifully polished tannins that give it a sense of elegance. It displays excellent overall balance with gorgeous fruit framed by lovely touch of acidity that provides a sense of freshness through the finish. This is already fantastic, however it should only continue to evolve over the next decade.
