Red Wine | Tempranillo
Marques de Riscal Proximo Rioja 2009 is a red wine from Rioja made with 93% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano, and 2% Mazuelo grapes. It has a dark cherry color with a violet-purple rim. It is highly aromatic with stewed red fruit, hints of burnt chocolate, black pepper, and smoky oak. On the palate, the attack is fresh, fruity with oak tannins present without overwhelming the fruit. It has moderate acidity with a long, pleasant finish in which the oak can be more clearly perceived. It pairs well with salads, pasta, grilled meat, or poultry. Enjoy!
