Marqués de Riscal Rioja Reserva 2013

Rioja Alavesa, Rioja, SpainDried cherry, subtle blackberry and fine smoke in this Reserva Rioja, showing wicking and wearing of a little age, but holding its youthful cherry core. Tannins are gritty but acidity swells, carrying this to the warming, salty finish. Reserva Riojas strike a great balance between old and new, and this classically styled one, consistently so.Tasted: 12 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
