1998 Lopez de Heredia Vina Bosconia Reserva

Report please!


Off a restaurant wine list. Started light on it's feet with an interesting sweetness and very light colour. Over time it gained weight, amazing red fruit, fantastic bouquet, silky with good acidity.
Initially very understated but the type that in time, you can't stay away from.

How was it? A lot of restaurants in town carry Sanguineti wines -

It was OK. It seems to be in an awkward phase right now. In transition between primary fruits and herbaceousness. Early on I would've given it a mid 90s score. Now it wouldn't hit 90. Give it time to slow-O? Who knows.
Lineup for dinner with friends tomorrow night I believe will be:

NV Louis Roederer Champagne Brut Premier
2011 Fess Parker Santa Rita Hills Ashley's Vyd. Chard.
2012 Francois Chidaine Vouvray Sec Les Argiles
2000 Les Tourelles de Longueville (Mag)
2003 Mas de Boislauzon CdP Cuvee du Quet
2004 Clarendon Hills Syrah Liandra
2011 Antica Terra Pinot Noir Botanica
