Rioja anyone?

I have a 1985 Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva and have seen limited but very different reviews on this wine. Would like some input on the experience of others and what food I might serve this with before I open it up. Thanks.

      Thanks - this is my first post - couldn't figure it out. Will look harder next time.

        All good. I think you'll find the expertise you seek on that board. I'd also suggest being specific in your title, along the lines of "1985 Marques de Riscal Rioja Reserva - what to pair with it?" to really get people interested. Hounds love a challenge.

          Great advice - thanks a bunch! That said, what do YOU think about the Rioja? : )

            We have moved this thread to the Wine board for you.

    2. A nice lamb dish would go with that wine!

      1. pasta in red sauce or pretty much any red meat

          1. Might be a bit late but...I went to a Spanish tasting last night and they recommended pork as a good match to rioja. whatever you have with it enjoy!
