Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva 2008

Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva 750ml 2008       
Sku: 13862

The reserva wines of Marqués de Riscal are made principally from Tempranillo vines which are over 15 years old. This is a variety that ages well in wood, producing wines with a good tannic structure, colour and acidity. . The reserva wines of Riscal spend approximately two years in American oak barrels, forming a wine that adheres to the principles of classic Rioja wines.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points (Jun 2014)
Deep, dark ruby red color. The nose is very charming and complex with waves of plum, blackberry and cherry with accents of anise, allspice, earth, vanilla, and toasted oak. The palate is in agreement with the nose delivering ripe and semi-tart fruit with a juicy core flanked by spice, earth, and oak. Simply beautiful with ideal balance, great length, and supple tannins. Great Value
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Dec 2013)
The 2008 Reserva seems like a much more serious wine, with fresh notes of cherries, some leather and pepper and a tight palate that reveals good balance, purity of flavors and good length. It should age well, as it has good balance. Drink 2014-2019.
