Marques de Riscal is one of Spain's most recognizable producers. The Baron de Chirel Reserva is an elegant and contemplative wine, which can be enjoyed all on its own, or as part of a very special feast.
"Neal Martin reviewed the 2010 Baron de Chirel Reserva before bottling in May 2012, and now all the good things he saw in that sample are confirmed by the bottled version. The nose offers a clear Bordeaux profile that is quite classical with cedar wood, lead pencil, tea leaves, leather and cherry aromas. On the palate the fine-grained, sophisticated tannins of the Cabernet are very well integrated with the oak and are countered by good freshness and length in a very classical harmonious style. This is a great showing for Chirel. Approximately 30% of the grapes used were Cabernet Sauvignon." -Luis Gutierrez, 93 Points - Wine Advocate
"Tobacco and tar notes frame dried cherry, plum and light gamy flavors in this old-school red. This is harmonious, with a savory character, a polished texture and a long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2020." - 90 Points - Wine Spectator
