Rioja Marques de Riscal Reserva 2015


Tasting note

Clear, dark ruby, with crimson glints against the light. Cherries, almost a maraschino character in the aroma, backed by subtle spice with an earthy whiff of older oak barrels. Bright and ripe on the palate, red-cherry fruit laced up with an acidic zing; tannins aren’t overly evident, but show up as a soft astringency in the tart, long finish. A Rioja meant for ageing, it will surely gain complexity with years in the cellar; but its bright fruit and easy tannins make it quite accessible now.

Food pairing

This wine goes well with ham, mild cheeses, casseroles which are not highly spiced, bean and pulse dishes, poultry, red meat, grills and roasts.
