Marques de Riscal - a classic is back

This is a classic Rioja house...back in stock....

2011 Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva....$12.99
Great price, we are the best price in the country on Wine Searcher

A red with lots of floral, dried fruits, and hints of lavender. Full-bodied, very structured and powerful. Loads of fruit, and shows tension and form. Drink or hold. Impressive.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling

Amazing price
2015 Marques de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc...$6.99

Next lowest price on Wine-Searchers is $8.13

The French variety Sauvignon Blanc, with which Marqués de Riscal makes this varietal white wine originally comes from the Loire Valley region. It was introduced in Rueda by Marqués de Riscal in 1974 and today the winery has 70 hectares from estate owned vineyard with an average age of over 25 years.
Tasting Notes: Pale yellow colour with greenish glints. A very complex nose with hints of fresh grass over a mineral base which gives the wine personality, and abundant fresh fruit such as citrus fruits, pineapple or melon. It leaves a fresh, aromatic taste in the mouth and has a clean, long finish.
