Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc Rueda 2004
Wine Tasting Notes Complex aroma of spices with a predominance of liquorice, while the oak remains discreet. Intense color with a slight accumulation of yellow, masked by the powerful red hue of the grape. On the palate, the impression of acidity on the tip of the tongue is immediately reflected towards the back by a touch of persistent tannin. Meanwhile soft on the finish, with no fixation at the back of the mouth and a lasting sensation of toast developing underneath the tongue.

Medium cherry red color with strongly perfumed rose and a hint of dust on the nose. Very soft, light, and thin on the palate with a bit of fruit, smoke, leather and oak. Agreeable and easy to drink.
I've been drinking this wine for the past 6 or 7 years, it's a staple in my arsenal. Every party I've brought it to or ever person who has tried likes how smooth and flavorful, goes with anything.
Great bargain. Classic Spanish red.
Fruity sour pepper with lots of heat and spice. ¡Caliente!
Oak, cocoa and barnyard on the nose, smokey and citrusy notes on a palette full of deep, earthy beets, subtle finish with more earth overtones. Might benefit from laying down.
This is an interesting bottle. Plenty of earth, prune, sour cherry and oak. Refined and smooth, a little hot but not over powering.

External Reviews for Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc Rueda
A high scorer in our blind tasting, we found here everything we love about traditional-style Rioja: red currant, macerated cherry, roasted nuts, and dusty saddle leather. Well-balanced and round, with fantastic length. Fans of old world wine: don't miss this great value in Rioja.
Bright ruby-red. Complex, aromatic bouquet of red berries, dried cherry, sassafras, tobacco and cedary oak. On the palate, dark fruits are joined by mounting vanilla and oak spice character. Packs a solid punch and finishes with very good spicy persistence.
Bright, deep red. Aromatic, suave nose combines plum, currant, nuts, tobacco and sweet oak spices. Dense, silky and fresh, with a mineral component contributing to the wine's clarity of flavor. A snappy, classic Rioja with excellent length. Very strong for the vintage.

The reserva wines of Marqués de Riscal are made basically from grapes coming from vines over 15 years old, of the Tempranillo variety. This is a variety that ages well in wood, producing wines with a good tannic structure, colour and acidity.
A dark cherry colour with good depth. Balsamic aromas with hints of ripe fruit, complex and spicy. The attack is fresh and light, with soft, rounded tannins. The finish proves persistent with some reminders of toasted oak. Its passage through the mouth is pleasant and elegant, fresh and easy to drink.
The 2005 Reserva is medium purple-colored with an excellent nose of cedar, Asian spices, violets, balsamic, and black cherry. Dense and layered on the palate, it is a powerful offering from an excellent vintage that will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and which should drink well through 2030. It is a great value as well as an ideal introduction to traditional Rioja.
