2005 Marques de Riscal Reserva Rioja

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) It has a well-defined mulberry, cocoa and mint-scented bouquet that unfurls temptingly in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and crisp acidity, serving up notes of blackberry, melted asphalt, undergrowth and a sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of white pepper on the entry. It is underpinned by firm tannins: a solid structure that is classic in style, but one that melts and coalesces beautifully over the course of twenty minutes in the glass.

It’s mid weight with a generous texture and a lengthy balanced and fruity finish. This is an outstanding example of well-made Tempranillo and deserves to be poured alone or with a generous helping of prime roast beef

    (From 1995 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Light, open, floor polish nose. Very soft, easy-drinking palate, with a rounded finish.
