In no other region do we find wines of such style, intensity and depth at a price that's so easy to justify. The value sometimes seems almost too good to be true, and yet as you taste these wines through the decades, the reality becomes apparent— Rioja is the best value in age-worthy wine today. Ti M eless, c lassic, r ioja l opez de Heredia is without a doubt the icon of classic Rioja. Their library releases of decades past provide the Rioja lover with a glimpse into a storied history of the region and the opportunity to drink a matured wine with impeccable provenance. Having been harvested after a long and cool growing season, and in perfect conditions, the 2004 Vina Tondonia spent a total of six years aging in barrel before resting another four in bottle.
