Viña Bosconia Tinto Reserva 2006
Viña Bosconia nace en la finca El Bosque y su nombre procede de un vino que el bisabuelo de los López de Heredia elaboraba al estilo de los franceses de la Borgoña y al que denominó Rioja Cepa Borgoña. Los vinos Viña Bosconia son a la vez elegantes, consistentes, de gran cuerpo, buena capa y estructura, así como de gran complejidad, plenitud y expresión.

Opinión de los críticos
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. 72,000 bottles were filled in June 2013.
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.
