2006 Lopez de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja

 

Smart man

An acquired taste M. 

Bought 4, opened one tonight, ordered 3 more. It’s more open to drink and more ripe flavours than the 04 or 01.

Similar thing happened to me 2 months ago. Purchased two, drank one, purchased two more the next day.  Probably the best young Tondonia Reserva I’ve had.

Yeah I think it’s more ready to drink than the other recent vintages. Comparable to 2005 in its approachability.

Trying to buy less with only marginal success. 

nice haul vinC & yes.  I keep losing at playing tetris with cases in the aisles between the racks and realize that I really need to increase my drinking if only to keep up with my wine buying habit.

I hear you E, running out of storage space and piling boxes seems to be perpetual.  I've had to decrease my drinking due to some health issues, which has only compounded the problem. 

 

Sorry to hear about the health issues VInC.  

I'm slowly coming to the realization i've got more of a wine-buying than a wine-drinking problem.

Thanks E, working on improving the health issues.  Same here re: more of a problem buying than drinking.  I've shifted buying away from categories I don't really drink and have started selling of chunks of the cellar that don't interest me as much.  However, for the narrower focus of wines that are of interest it's buy buy buy...  lol.
