2005 Marqués de Riscal Rioja Gran Reserva

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

7/5/2015 - ProfByron Likes this wine: 90 points

American oak, some of it a bit old and unclean, dominates the nose.

On the palate it has a sweet core of fruit that is rather impressive.

Was better on the 2nd day (decanter into half bottle sealed with screw cap). Should age for another decade.

14% ABV. Sealed with cork.

Dyp rødlilla farge. Lukt av sorte bær med litt tørkede kirsebær. Smak av mørke bær. Frisk syre. En del krydder, men samtidig velbalansert og rund. Lang ettersmak, med litt eik og tanniner. Først drukket til grillet lammebog. En god match, men tåler nok også mat med enda mer smak. Senere drukket forran utepeisen en sen sommerkveld og jammen passet den ikke til det også.

Vibrant nose, red berry and oaky initial flavor, and then BURN. Too hot! If not for the heavy alcohol finish, this would be a gorgeous wine. Alas, the sharp burn when swallowing kinda ruined the experience :^(

Tastes alongside a Faustino 2001 GR, and man were they worlds apart! The Faustino was still unbelievably youthful, fruit forward, boisterous, and zippy for a 14 year old wine. The marques was showing all the signs of good aged red, exhibiting secondary flavors of earth, stone, crimini mushroom, prune juice, fermenting compost...a fascinating comparison of years.

Russk. Spanish food and wine tasting at CGCClub. One of my top 3 wines. So old school. No jam. Nice tobacco and Barnyard. Buy some of this vintage to try again.

6/21/2015 - Adrian Wood Likes this wine: 92 points

Oak, vanilla, tobacco and dark plums on the nose. Integrated tannins, good acidity, liquorice and cassis on the palate with an oaky slightly bitter finish. Went very well with roast lamb and even better with cheese. Complex and savoury, a really nice bottle. Hopefully there is enough fruit to balance the oak in the future. Excellent pqr.

Decanted. A bit dumb initially but, with time, it opened up nicely. The fruit was more in the black than red fruit spectrum, nicely integrated American oak - vanilla underpinned by coconut. Second bottle of the night and was suitably 'pudding' to go with the first bottle's more 'main course' style.

Medium red, light rim. Fine cherry with medicinal overtones. Lightweight, but pronounced flavors. Nice fruit. Better than I had hoped at first, and not all too old. Plenty of time to drink this over a few years.

Popped and poured from a small bottle with screw cap. On the nose some currant aromas. Medium bodied, dry and smooth, delivering flavors of yellow stone fruit and increasing currant/gooseberry notes. Gentle and firm acidity. Funny that with more airtime the flavor profile clearly changed into flavors I often find in Sauvignon Blanc, like currant,nettles and even cat pee. Anyway a good quaffer.

Oldies but goodies: VH shoulder, clear colour, brickish brown hues.
Well, this is the real deal, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Tempranillo, aged in bottle, not in a cask as '28 Paternina. The nose and palate show it. The wine had a noticeable older feeling to it, but was more interesting for the exact same reason, it felt more true and genuine in a way.
Nose of smoke, toastiness, tar, sauna and hot wood as well as hay. Soft and delicate on the palate, round taste of herbs and hay. What an experience!

Rioja Masterclass (WSPC): 80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 10% Mazuelo, 3 years in ages US oak and then at least 3 more years in bottle.
The color is clear, evolved deep garnet.
The nose is clean, med+ intensity, the profile is evolved, ripe red berries and cherries, nutmeg, coconut, dried leaves and herbs, earthy notes to that fact, tea leaves, developed, some black fruit notes after some time, chocolate liquer.
The wine is dry, med+ body and intensity, 14% alcohol, med+ acidity, med+ tannins, evolved in the palate as well, dried red fruit, nicely balanced, med finish. Palate like the Marques de Caceres tried before but more linear
Very good quality to outstanding, drinking now but will hold

Classic rioja, with a spicy note, lots of sweet oak, vanilla, leather, red berries, cherrie, tea. Perhaps marked by the hot vintage since the fruit almost felt heavy, at least for a classic rioja...will definetly try the 2010!

Powerful, heady stuff. Floral, with fifty shades of yellow fruit, white lily, tropical notes coupled with cool refreshing bite. Very full bodied, painted in broad strokes, yet refreshing and stylish. The world should drink more Verdejo.

Certainly more fruit up front than I expected, and a modern style, but still channels Rioja. Cherries, leather, tobacco with light mid weight. Nicely balanced and pairs well with many foods. Excellent value.

Quite balanced modern type Rioja. Silky and smooth on the palate, fruity on the nose. The only negativity is a slight bitterness on the finish. Quite mature for a reserva this young.
