Marqués de Cáceres Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 2000

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This full-bodied red is only made in good vintages in the Rioja Alta region of Spain. The hand-picked grapes of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano are blended and aged in both French and American oak, giving this wine zesty aromas, berry fruit flavors and a long, smooth finish. Give this wine a chance to breathe before drinking with hearty meats.

Medium red. Aromatic nose of cherry, plum, leather and tobacco; more wild than modern. Then supple and juicy, with nicely dry flavors of raspberry, red cherry, baking spices and pepper. Brick, sappy Rioja, finishing with firm tannins and lingering, clean flavors.

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 itrsquo;s largely an open, steady and satisfying wine. Even if it doesnrsquo;t pump up and thump its chest, it still scores points for its friendliness.
