#79: Marques de Riscal Rioja
I've had this wine as least twice now. The first time I brought it to Tango Sur, Argentinian steakhouse which is a BYOB restaurant. There were four of us at dinner, three of which did not really like red wine. But we had two converters because two of the gals really liked it - as did I.
Marques de Riscal Rioja is listed as #79 on Food & Wine's 100 Tastes to Try in 2007. Actually, the wine itself is not listed, going to their new hotel and spa is. But you only notice that if you read the fine print so I'm going to count it just the same.
