2005 Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva Rioja



Source: Rioja, Spain

 Jim’s Whims:

No other region in the world ages its best wines for you with hardly an up-charge for the service.  This gem from one of Rioja's greatest vintages in decades is in its prime, yet its old school styling probably also allows for more than ten more years of cellaring.  Classical elegance happens here, with fewer than 400 cases imported to the U.S.  - and our price is NICE!
