Marques de Caceres Crianza Carte Blanca Rioja Doca 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Attractive, bright ruby red colour. Refined bouquet of black cherries and blackberries with a soft touch of aromatic Mediterranean herbs. Lusciously fresh and fruity in the mouth where rich fruit (cherries, strawberries, raspberries) and notes of cinnamon mingle to give a pleasant fullness with a backbone of silky-smooth tannins. Long-lasting, unctuous finish. A splendid vintage that is velvety-soft and elegant. A perfect accompaniment to Mediterranean cuisine, fried food, grilled vegetables, pulses, paella and other rice dishes, pasta, fish in tomato sauce, ham, chorizo, pte, beef (roast, stewed, or grilled) and cheese (mild or medium matured). Serve at: 16-18 degrees C.

Bodegas Marques de Caceres:
The name of this wine. Marques de Caceres was lent by D. Vicente Noguera y Espinosa de los Monteros. Today, he has been succeeded by his son D. Juan Noguera Merle, a worthy representative of the Marquisate which was granted in the XVIII century to his ancestor Juan Ambrosio Garcia de Caceres y Montemayor, a Captain of the Royal Armada for war merits.

Cedar and patchouli nose, "bright" fresh fruit/grape flavors balance acidity well, finishing with cranberry and low-medium tannins. Great with grilled/salty meats, Italian/tomato-based foods also.

Fun aromas of beef bouillon and dark fruit - still a little heat too despite the age. The juicy palate is mostly full of ripe blackberries, but there's a hint of cocoa and some baking spice. Finishes sharp with a bit of menthol.

red berry fruit with some dark cocoa notes, concentrated fruit flavors with some stewed strawberries and seeping tea; nice complexity.

Whoa, lots of oak on this one, laced with some sweet/savory vanilla notes. Bright, ripe red berries on the nose lead into a very metallic palette that finishes off with a hint of cherry pie.

Saturated and dark, with prune, dried cheese and leather on the nose. The body is full and offers good tannins to prop up chewy, baked flavors of blackberry, dark plum and chocolate. Very nice, easygoing and ready to drink now.

A silky red, offering fresh fruit flavors of plum and blackberry, with espresso and licorice notes. Firm, bright and balanced, with a perfumed, floral finish. Drink now through 2018.

Produced from old vines in the finest vintages, Caceres Rioja Reserva is rich and structured, with cherry and fig aromatics, a bright, precise mid-palate, and a very harmonious finish.

<p>A very dry Spanish rioja which tastes of sweet-and-sour cherries, with acids and soft, creamy tannins. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to fried food, grilled vegetables, paella and other rice dishes.</p>
