Tasting Notes

2011 Marqués de Riscal Reserva, Rioja DOCa, Spain

This Rioja wine is also named “Herederos del Marqués de Riscal Reserva”.

Deep ruby with pronounced red fruit aromas – strawberry, raspberry, red cherry – and spicy notes – black pepper. Quite complex for Reserva, with animal nuances – meat, leather – and little bit chocolate. Medium body, quite sustained acidity, rather low tannins. Red fruits – red cherry, strawberry, sour cherry – are complemented by tobacco, hints of earth and sweet spices – vanilla – on the palate. Marqués de Riscal’s Reserva is very representative of the characteristics of Rioja wines.
