These sort of wines really need decanted. So much dusty old wood notes need to blow off but when it does, it gets really nice and layered dark fruits with balanced oak.

An American oak bomb. Toasted coconut, dill, leather and a beautiful core of sweet red fruit. A great traditional style Rioja.

Really?! Crazy day with crazy wines. I'm in love. Truly truly in love with Spain. Thanks to Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva 2005 magnum. Dark dried berries, cinnamon, tobacco leaves, whet forest, mushroom... Great and complex. Balanced, well structured with smooth tannins and long aftertaste. Drink now, it's ready and you deserve it.

When I saw the Gran Reserva from MdR I had to try it, especially from 2005. As hoped it had a heavy powerful nose of pure Rioja, plummy, cigar box, vanilla, strong fruit, earth, musty and showing good age, all the wonderful elements you expect in endless amounts. The palate is pure elegance, it glides across the palate, smooth, medium bodied, glossy with highly polished finesse, alluring and enveloping. The tannin waits to the last possible moment and bring the finish to glorious completion.

16/20 (89/100) Животно, с изрядным дубом, достаточно плотно, суховато, гастрономично. #spain #rioja #tempranillo #pts89

After 20 months in barrel and 16 in bottle this Rioja is subtle, creamy but still packs a punch.

Soft tannins, full body, not fruitforward or ripefruits by any means. A little boring on the palate, not very complex at all. What I like about this wine is the texture—silky smooth, but then again, it doesn’t linger as long as I’d like it to. Overall, pretty good wine for the price point.

Solid rioja. Savory with mineral and hints of spice.
