Rioja Reserva 2007 Marques de Riscal
European Winery of The Year 2014! Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Wine Star Award.

Marques de Riscal is one of Rioja’s legendary estates. In 1858 Herederos de Marqués de Riscal became the first winery in the Rioja to produce wines following the Bordeaux method of slow fermentation and careful blending. A classic Rioja wine, the Marqués de Riscal Reserva is 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and Mazuelo from 30- to 40-year-old vines. A hand selection and triage is done as the grapes come in to the winery and only the best grapes of the vintage are selected for use in the Reserva. After slow, temperature controlled fermentation that brings deep color and extract, the wine spends approximately two years in American oak barrels, creating a fine structure and added complexity but extended bottle age as required for Reserva brings soft, supple tannins along with delightful fruit and spice that linger on a long finish.

          If you like or prefer dry reds from Europe other than France, this is it; and it will not hurt your monthly allowance. Purchased couple of bottles 8 months ago and loved the taste; so repeat we did and were not disappointed. Well balanced, nice bouquet, easy on the palate and digestion.

          • Good Nose When Opened

          Cons

          • Looses It After It Opens
          • Short Finish

          Best Uses

          • Maybe Age Will Help

          Comments about Rioja Reserva 2007 Marques de Riscal:

          It opened with a great nose and a good flavor, but it quickly changes and become flat and not nearly as good. We did not finish the bottle and will use it for marinate.

            My wife is from Spain so we have opportunities to visit often and try a wide array of Riojas. This 2007 Reserve is particularly flavorful and smooth. Enjoyed it very much.
