External Reviews for Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva Tempranillo Wine
Young, tight and tannic, with an earthy edge to the cola, cherry, sage and spice flavors. With breathing it shows more cranberry and spice, but it's still on the tannic side, so try in 1998 to '99.

From a 13.1-acre vineyard planted in 1997, the 2007 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard was cropped at an absurdly low .84 tons of fruit per acre. This beauty offers up notes of forest floor, raspberries, fresh mushrooms, sweet currants, and meat juices. The provocative, riveting aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with sweet tannins, dense, chewy, lush fruit, good acidity, and a 40-second finish. Drink this profound Pinot Noir over the next decade or more.
