Calera Pinot Noir Mount Harlan Mount Harlan Cuvée 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva 2001 is a dark-cherry coloured wine with brick red hues. Its aroma is complex and balsamic, with burnt wood and hints of spices such as black pepper and cinnamon. It has an oily mouth-feel, with good backbone and concentration of tannins, round and supple with a long, silky finish.

This was a nice, but unremarkable Rioja. Grape and cherry notes on the nose. Light but very drying tannins on the tongue. Acidic bright finish calmed down once the bottle had aired out a bit - decant this one for a smoother finish.

I opened this on my birthday a few days ago. Very good wine! Eleven years old with the tertiary aromas fully developed. Decanting was absolutely necessary and the second day was still good enough! 2001 was an excelent year for Rioja. Could stay one or two years but not longer than this, because of the moderate acidity.

i pick this up for $12.99 at Trader Joe's...it might be one of the best bargains on the market. Just wonderful, classic Rioja temparanillo with strong (but not overpowering) tannins and complex character.

Marqués de Riscal Gran Reserva 2001: Ein reifer, sehr alter, voll entwickelter Rioja traditionellen Stils mit fester Struktur, würzigen Aromen und lebendigem Säurespiel. Nachwievor werden im Hause Marques de Riscal die Weine aus handverlesenen Trauben in Barriques aus amerikanischer Eiche (in der Kellerei gibt es 30.000 davon) gelagert, die dann ausschließlich als 'Reserva' d.h. nach mindestens vier Jahren Fass- und Flaschenlager auf den Markt kommen. Von besonderen Jahrgängen werden geringe Mengen als 'Gran Reserva' zurückgelegt und auf dem Höhepunkt ihrer Entwicklung für den Verkauf freigegeben. Ideal als krönender Begleiter eines festlichen Essens, zum Fleischgang oder zum Käse.    Weingut: Marques de RiscalRegion: RiojaRebsorte: TempranilloInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (48 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja
