Marqués de Cáceres Rosé Blend Rioja Rosado 2007
Intense, ruby red color. Expressive nose with notes of raspberries, bilberries and cherries, enlivened by a touch of spice and a depth of vanilla. Charming fruit in the mouth with good structure that highlights concentrated flavors and fleshy tannins. Nice complexity on tasting resulting in good length. Thanks to a rigorous selection from our best "cuvees" for 2007 Crianza, this wine retains in full the character from top quailty grapes.
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.
Editorial Reviews for Marqués de Cáceres Rosé Blend Rioja Rosado
Lots of oak on the nose here, sweet, vanilla rich, with slightly heavy damp wood tones and some dirty base notes with some bruised orchard fruit character. A bit lean on entry with noticeable acid and relatively pronounced and somewhat murky tannins in the mouth. There’s some nice fruit here a touch plummy at first with a lot of burnished wood accenting notes. The tannins are dry and fairly unrelenting , keeping the fruit at bay while the finish reveals more wood influenced flavors with a sour cherry underlay. A bit clumsy but well made if you love woody Crianza. A touch raw on the finish 84pts
Great wine at a good price. I picked up a bottle for $10. Would go wonderfully with a steak or other similarly hearty dish. Does not taste good with garlic though.
My Rating 86. Compared to the price this wine does not deliver. hint of Carbonation in the beginning, astringend taste with little complexity. The nos is short but well balanced and promises more than I could taste

A full-bodied red with spicy aromas and berry fruit flavors with rich notes of chocolate and coffee. It has velvety soft, silky tannins and a long, smooth finish.
A rich full bodied wine with spicy aromas, berry fruit flavors, and a velvety finish.
Cherry and tobacco flavors are light but balanced and clean in this supple red. It has just enough tannin for grip. Drink now through 2004.
Good medium red. Plum, cherry, tar, milk chocolate and a whiff of leather on the nose. Supple and spicy, with sound acidity giving the wine good life in the mouth. Finishes sweet but crisp, with a refreshing bite of acidity.
A spicy overlay of nutmeg and tobacco gives this supple red character, though it overshadows the modest cherry fruit. Has enough grip for light food. Drink now through 2005.
This round red offers ripe plum, vanilla and light tobacco flavors on a plump frame. Clean and fresh, with just enough tannins for grip. Drink now through 2010.
Dried red fruit, pepper and mint on the nose, and clove, vanilla and raspberry on the palate. It tails away in tight, dry form, yet it's largely an open, steady and satisfying wine. Even if it doesn't pump up and thump its chest, it still scores points for its friendliness.
