Marqués de Riscal Rioja Reserva 1998

Rioja Alavesa, Rioja, SpainSweaty mousey leather barnyard pruny nose with coffee vanilla and mocha highlights. Similar flavours of coffee mocha and prune with a dusting of tannin. Fairly firm acidity and dry flavours in the finish. Definitely Old World style here. Hold three of four years for best results.Tasted: 01 March 2001Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
