Lopez de Heredia is without argument one of the great wineries of the world. They make wines the way they have since the late 1800's and age them for a substantial amount of time before release. And the wine is beautiful. It will age wonderfully for decades (speaking from experience of drinking a 1942 about a decade ago).
"The 1968 Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva has a delicate nose of black currant infusion tea, dried flowers, leather and candied orange peel that is beautifully defined, but perhaps not as intense as the 1970. The palate is seamless and weightless on the entry with perfect acidity and delicate �traces� of flavors such as tart cherry, cola and leather. It constitutes a textural Rioja rather than one that delivers flavors on a plate. This is sublime classic Rioja. Drink now-2020+. " The Wine Advocate 95 points
