James Suckling: 94pts

"This rich and silky red that seduces you with its silky tannins and subtle bouquet of redcurrants, plums, cedar and autumn leaves. Yet there are some serious tannins in here that build on the long elegant finish. Drink or hold." (8/2018)

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94pts

 "The 2006 Viña Bosconia Reserva, always more rustic and powerful than the Viña Tondonia, was cropped from a warm and early harvest and is a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha and 5% Graciano and Mazuelo. This wine matures in used American oak barrels for five years. It has a very developed nose, and as winemaker Mercedes López de Heredia noted, "It could be confused with a Gran Reserva, as I see it more tertiary and developed." These are amazing wines, clean and complex, with polished tannins and surprisingly good acidity. I have the idea of 2006 as a warmer vintage, but it's not true throughout Rioja; as I've seen with other wines, like the ones from Muga, in this cooler part of Rioja, the vintage was much better. There are some dusty tannins and some flavors that still remind you of fresh fruit." (LG) (2/2018)
