Had a bottle about 9 months ago. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 8% Garnacha and 7% Graciano, with aging in French oak. Deep Ruby with red and black fruit aromas and earthy spice. The palate shows cherry and blackberry flavors with smoke, cacao and spice. Vivid acidity, firm ripe tannins, integrated lending to a medium+ finish ending with some earthy notes. Just starting to deliver, a few more years will benefit. Great value for a Gran Reserva, aging well.

The 2015 ‘Reserva’ by Marques de Caceres follows up the fantastic 2014 bottling. Sourced from this exciting warm vintage in Rioja, the wine opens with layers of red and dark fruits that are woven together with suggestions of orange rind, coffee ground and milk chocolate tones that all take shape in the glass. The silky texture entices. Black tea and Asian spices brilliantly combine with leather, damp earth and a good core of black fruits on this expressive palate. The long black fruit and mineral-driven finish lingers long on the tongue. While a delight to savor right now, the 2015 Marques de Caceres ‘Reserva’ Rioja will evolve well in the cellar for decades to come. Drink 2020-2035- 92

Quite austere - not sure if simply too young as this was decanted for around five or six hours, so had plenty of time to open up. Sadly, never really did. Very tough on the tannic front - a very savoury wine aided somewhat by the faint presence of some cherry and bergamot, but otherwise nothing special.

Nice blend of black/red fruits, spice, extra time in oak noticeable, needs a little bit of air to settle down. Good length, fruit forward and ripe although not necessarily any better than the cheaper Creansa for me.

Beautiful red and black fruit, firm tannins, smoked meat, spice box, structure. Reminds us of a good right bank Bordeaux. Obviously could age a while.

Medium-bodied, lush tannins, good complexity with strawberry, plum, tobacco leaf, cigar, and resiny oak notes. Good length and complexity.
