About Our Ratings

Rioja Reserva 2008 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.

    Comments about Rioja Reserva 2008 Marques de Riscal:

    If the 2008 is just as good or better than their 2007 then you can expect me to order a case or two. A wine worth remembering and sharing with friends. I've paired it with and used it in a sauce I served over filet mignon stuffed with Gorgonzola.
