Marques de Riscal Reserva 2012
Grapes: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano
Cherry-red color. Spicy, balsamic aromas of great complexity, with notes of ripe dark berries and light toasted nuances. On the palate it is full and tasty, with good structure and rounded, elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh.
4 $18-21.00
Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva 2007
Grapes: Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 8% Graciano, 2% Mazuelo.
Sourced from vines over 80 years from estate vineyards and brought in from regular local growers. After blending the wines from the harvest, the wine destined to become a Gran Reserva is transferred into French-oak casks where it will remain for 32 months followed by a further three years in the bottle prior to release for sale.

Deep black-cherry color with violet hues. Elegant, complex nose with aromas of black fruit and spice. Smooth and round in the mouth. With silky tannins that remain in the mouth in perfect balance with a long lingering finish.
9 $40.00
Marques de Riscal Baron de Chirel 2012
Sourced from very old low yielding Tempranillo vines, between 80-110 years old. Made only in the best years. Cask aged 24 months in French oak. Minimum one year aging in bottle before release.

Dark cherry color. High aromatic intensity in which the toasted and spicy aromas from the French oak predominate, together with ripe, dark-berried fruit. In the mouth, it is fresh and smooth with soft, polished tannins in which the wood is not too intrusive. Complex and elegant with a long, balanced finish. The Favorite of the Flight.
