Rioja and Duero.

1.- Marques de Caceres. Gran Reserva. 2001. Rioja. Rich tannins, very nice. Oak. Affordable. Great taste and goes with almost anything. There is a separate comment regarding Gaudium in this blog.
2.- Herederos del Marques de Riscal. 1996, 1998, 2000. Rioja. Tempranillo and Graciano. Very intense and flavory.
3.- Castillo Ygay Tinto. 1998. Marques de Murrieta. Rioja. Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Rich and strong. Great wine.
4.- Tinto Pesquera, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000. Alejandro Fernandez. Ribera del Duero. Tempranillo.
5.- Baron de Chirel, Reserva, 2001. Rioja. Tempranillo and others. The best wine from Marques de Riscal.
