The 2008 Rioja Blanca is crisp, lemony, and lively. The nose is fairly intense and has lots of citrus, particularly lemon, apple, and some tropical notes. My first taste had banana flavor, which was quickly overtaken by that everpresent lemon and some minerality and grassiness. It has very high acidity and a short finish.

Love this wine... To me it is a perfect Rioja...heavy on berries and tannins with a hint of oak and absolutely zero sharpness... It also has a raspberry and coffee finish.. Really just gorgeous!

Tempranillo grape, with a wide range of aromas detectable wines give it a charm in and of itself, with tasting ranging from strawberries, blackcurrants and cherries, to prunes, chocolate and tobacco

Fragrant with violets and black cherry fruit, this takes time to move beyond its clean lines toward something more emphatically earthy. Air brings a stoniness to the structure, while the wine seems blacker, with the assertive precision of a flamenco dancer’s heel.

This focused red is subtle but harmonious, with well-integrated flavors of black cherry, toast, herbs and spice layered over fine tannins. Crisp and fresh. Drink now through 2014.

An ideal wine to relax with as a delicious apéritif or to accompany seafood, grilled fish and shellfish. Also a great, dry white wine that works with sushi and sashimi dishes. Drink chilled.

This wine has an attractive, bright ruby red color. With a refined bouquet of black cherries and blackberries with a soft touch of aromatic Mediterranean herbs, this rioja is lusciously fresh and fruity in the mouth where rich fruits of cherries, strawberries, raspberries, and notes of cinnamon mingle to give a pleasant fullness with a backbone of silky-smooth tannins. With a long-lasting, unctuous finish, the rioja is a splendid vintage that is velvety soft and elegant. 85% Tempranillo, and 15% Garnacha Tinta and Graciano.

This, rich full-bodied wine is made only in excellent vintages from hand-picked Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano grapes grown in Rioja Alta. Aged in French and American oak casks, Marques de Caceras Red Crianza has spicy aromas, berry fruit flavors and a velvety finish. Open preferably one hour before serving with hearty dishes, roasts, grilled meats or tapas.

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.

This focused red is subtle but harmonious, with well-integrated flavors of black cherry, toast, herbs and spice layered over fine tannins. Crisp and fresh. Drink now through 2014. 90,000 cases imported. -TM ** SOLD OUT **
