94/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2004 Vintage)
"The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savoury (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence."


91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2004 Vintage)
"Slightly damp, earthy and cool aromas introduce this traditional Rioja. In the mouth, pinchy tannins and tomatoey acidity pave the way for flavours of raisin, peppery spice and leafy herbs. A long steady finish is full of life. Drink now through 2030."


90/100 Wine Spectator ​(2004 Vintage)​
"Savoury flavours of tea, mushroom and leather frame dried cherry and orange peel notes in this traditional-style red. Features a smooth, polished texture, with light tannins and bright acidity. Harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2020."
