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
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.

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.
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.
Scents of blackberries, coffee and spicy oak jump out at you from the start. Medium to full-bodied, this wine is loaded with mouthcoating tannins that are balanced by lush fruit flavors.
A more refined style of Spanish wine, this offering possesses aromas of dried berries and earth. The midpalate is filled with dense flavors of fig and dark roots, contained within a rich, full body. As a result of prolonged barrel aging, the finish has flavors of vanilla and toasty oak.
Situated majestically within the Alavesa district, this bodega is one of the oldest estates in La Rioja. Traditional in style, the wine focuses more on subtlety and terroir than on ultra-extracted fruit and a lumberjack's sensibility to oak. As a Reserva, the wine displays a developed ruby color and mature, layered aromatics. Roasted coffee, saddle leather, toast, dill, lavender and hints of tobacco are wonderfully fragrant and delineated on the nose. The palate reveals charming flavors of baker's chocolate, prunes, dates, damson, vanilla and blackberries expressed in a soft and restrained manner. Aged for two years in large barrels and one year in bottle, the oak influence is evident, yet well integrated amidst medium texture, weight, and acidity. It is unheard of to find reserva Rioja of this quality at this price.
