Winemaker Notes

A very dark black-cherry color with faint brick-red glints. It has an intense, complex nose with hints of black pepper, balsamic aromas, and slight toastiness, reminding you of fine oak. On the palate, the aging nuances are in perfect harmony with the fruit, with good tannin concentration, round and supple, with a long, silky smooth finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Earthy, leathery aromas of baked red fruits fit the classic style. This is full on the palate but not heavy, with cola, molasses, coffee and heady raspberry and plum flavors. A warm finish with fine tannins and ripe flavors of chocolate, lightly baked black fruits and vanilla. Drink 2015–2025.
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Complex and quite Old-World in style, the classic and well-made 2005 Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva brings red fruit, leather, and dust to the fore. The wine's smooth and layered palate invites a pairing with a grilled beef topped with a light blue-veined cheese sauce. (Tasted: July 25, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Tempranillo

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
