Marques de Riscal 'Reserva XR' 2017

10 units available online.
Product description

Very deep, cherry red colour with a vivid hue at the rim. As with good Bordeaux wines, it is somewhat closed to begin with. Smoked, spicy aromas (nutmeg, cinnamon) appear, with black liquorice, ripe red and black fruits (blueberries, blackcurrants) and balsamic notes, with very good intensity. Perfectly integrated oak. There is tension on the palate, great youthfulness and an outstanding creamy texture that fi lls the mouth. The tannins are lively, polished and very fi ne. Broad and long, meaty and structured, but elegant with great freshness and fruit on the finish.

96 Points - Decanter

Marques de Riscal XR is rich, complex and expertly structured. It will be great to drink now, or be laid down for good amount of time. Do not miss out on this one!

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Deep ruby in the glass, this wine has a nose of blackberry, black cherry, milk chocolate and clove. There is a nice balance of spice and fruit on the palate, with flavors of black currant, pomegranate, clove, licorice and dark chocolate. Sturdy tannins dissipate into a lengthy finish.
