Marqués de Riscal Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva 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 Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva
Good full red. Aromas of plum, currant, tobacco, leather and oak. Juicy and fresh but lean and lacking sweetness. Finishes with firm, toothdusting tannins and a distinct dryness.
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.
No, it's not a typo. It's a magnum of 1990 Rioja Reserva and it's going just fine, thank you. And the fact that it was created in a leaner, more restrained style makes it all the more remarkable that it's drinking so well now. Slightly tawny in color, the fruit is tart, vibrant, rustic, and unmistakably Riojan.
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.
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.
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.
Starts off a little shaky, but just needs a little time in a decanter to right itself and blow off some dusty aromas. Underneath that is some toasty oak, along with cherry, vanilla and tobacco flavors. It's relatively light, supple and ready to drink tonight with roast lamb.
