A blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha & 5% Graciano. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas and pepper spice. The palate shows cherries and blackberries with some spice and oaky notes. Firm ripe tannins are well-integrated and balanced with the acidity, medium+ finish, good mouthfeel. Nice Value.

Marqués de Cáceres is about the only Rioja I see everywhere. They must produce a boat load of it. They nail the QPR and it’s a pretty safe bet considering what else is out there. This was 8€. Crianza (1 year in oak, 1 in bottle, but 4 years down the Crianza and Reserva distinction no longer matters?). Ripe, sweet red fruits, a little tart on opening, tannic. Sneaks in at 90.

Very tannic. Dry and bitter almost unpleasant. But then it opened up and is actually pretty good with food. I uncorked it for 1 hr before serving, but it’s not like any of the other riojas we’ve loved. Took a real long time to get some fruit flavors.

We really like this Rioja. Plum, berries, and vanilla are our tasting notes. It paired extremely well with a white chicken chili with a little kick. Would absolutely buy again. Very smooth.
