Marques De Riscal Reserva, Rioja, Spain, 2018
Grape varieties, 96% Tempranillo with 4% Graciano, aged for 22 months in American Oak Barrels and at least a further year in bottle before release.
Intense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality
Classic Rioja style: fresh, fine, elegant and very suitable for laying down for many years.
"Colour: dark-red cherry, garnet rim; Aroma: ripe fruit, aged wood nuances, tobacco, sweet spices; Flavour: spicy, round tannins, long"
93/100 points, Guia Penin (Spain, June 2022)
This wine pairs well with ham, mild cheeses, casseroles which are not too spicy, pulse dishes, poultry, red meat, grilled and roast meat.
