Bodegas Y Viñedos de la Marquesa Rioja Gran Reserva Valserrano 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Medium-layer cherry red, with a gradual colour change towards the edge. Aroma: Intense, open and long-lasting. Without swirling, the wine gives off aromas of ginger, sun-dried hay, sun-dried apricots and peaches, and black-skinned berries. Swirling brings out fresher hints of red berries, with dairy notes. Taste: On the attack the wine is fresh, with tasty tannins and cocoa and orange peel flavours. Complex, pleasant and fresh. Lingering, elegant aftertaste.

Due to the hot swing, the '03 has a lot of fruit giving it a very modern feel. Luckily they did not lose freshnees giving the wine a nice balance. Cherry pie, leather, and cigar box dominate. A wonderful value Gran Reserva
