Winemaker Notes

Intense black-cherry colour with violet hues. On the nose it expresses its complex, balsamic, aromatic intensity, in perfect balance with the fruit and the lightly toasted aromas which recall fine oak. On the palate it is smooth and full, in harmony with the fruit, with good concentrated tannins, round and with a long finish.

This wine pairs well with ham, mature cheese, red meat, all kinds of roasts and game casseroles.

Blend: 72% Tempranillo, 28% Others

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Aromas of black mushrooms, sweet cherries and plums with some cedar and intense lavender. Full-bodied with chewy yet polished tannins and beautiful presence at the finish. Lively and intense. Better after 2025, but already very impressive.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

This deep-ruby-colored wine offers aromas of black plum, dark chocolate and Earl Grey tea. On entry, it is smooth in the mouth, with flavors of mint, clove, cherry, black currant, dark chocolate and orange blossom. Vigorous tannins coat the tongue and gums and diffuse into a lingering finish.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

This plushly textured red is firmed by fine, chalky tannins, which are well-meshed with aromas and flavors of black plum reduction, violet, cured tobacco, red licorice and tarry mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, this lightly zesty version offers a touch of milled white pepper, with a lingering finish. Drink now.

Marques de Riscal Winery Video

Wines of the Herederos de Marqués de Riscal has always been a leading and pioneering company in the wine producing sector. In 1858, it became the first winery in the Rioja to produce wines following the Bordeaux method and in 1972, it was the first winery to promote the Rueda Designation of Origin, where it produced its famous Marqués de Riscal white wines. Marqués de Riscal sells its products in over 70 countries and its wines have enjoyed the highest international distinctions as well as numerous awards and mentions in the media. Showcasing design, art, gastronomy, wine and the lush landscape all combine to create a memorable sojour… The vision of Frank O. Gehry was to create a 21st century château, an icon for one of the oldest wineries in the Rioja region, Vinos de los Herederos de Marqués de Riscal that connect the historic legacy with the modern art and wine nature. The building is a composition of rectilinear prisms that float above the ground by three super columns that support the building. The building rises nine meters above the ground and crosses the underground wine store of Marqués de Riscal to support itself with the three super columns. This allows spectacular views in all levels, to see the vineyards, Elciego, and the mountains of the Sierra de Cantabria as a background. Everything is wrapped in cascades of titanium (Canopies) colored in pink, gold and silver symbolizing the reddish hues of red wine, the mesh of the wine bottle of Marqués de Riscal and the capsule of the bottle

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.
