Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva 2007

Sku: 003336

The reserva wines of Marqués de Riscal are made principally from Tempranillo vines which are over 15 years old. This is a variety that ages well in wood, producing wines with a good tannic structure, colour and acidity. . The reserva wines of Riscal spend approximately two years in American oak barrels, forming a wine that adheres to the principles of classic Rioja wines.

2006: 87 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Deep red. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, cherry, tobacco and vanilla, with an herbal overtone. Round and silky in texture, offering modestly concentrated red fruit flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Finishes with gentle sweetness and soft tannins, leaving a smoky, meaty note behind. "

Wine maker notes
The 2007 Mills boasts aromas of black cherry, blueberry, and hints of forest floor with a twist. In the mouth it explodes with blackberry jam, dried herbs, and a subtle white pepper spice. A soft tannic backbone carries the richness and creates a long silky finish.
