Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva 2001
from Rioja, Spain
On the nose, this wine does not need to breathe. From the beginning, it reveals a pleasant bouquet which evolves, in stages, from the balsamic aroma of the still glass to oaky vanilla after swirling it in the glass, passing through an intermediate spicy phase.
Dark colour in the bulb of the wine glass, with a cherry red rim which, depending on the light, can reflect a slightly yellowish tinge from the ageing.
In the mouth the tannin soon appears on the central part of the tongue, very quickly fading from the front to linger on the edges, while the sensation on the palate evolves from freshness on the hard palate to finish on the soft palate with a sensation of warmth and finally leaving a sensation of toast underneath the tongue.
