Initially big intense chocolate bouquet, then somewhat lighter on the palate with a strong and persistent finish. Beautiful wine.

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.

Some fig and some yeasty type smell. Being is 14yrs old and color is showing some brown in look. Taste is not vibrant and a bit tired. Smooth finish. Would have liked this a few years back.

Gran reserva 1995.
Posiblemente la definición de un vino clásico español en una botella.
