Marqués de Cáceres Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 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.

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.

Smoky/berry scent. Smooth taste with flavors of berries, smoke, and mocha.

Decanted for about one hour before serving. Deep red in color. On the nose this wine shows some herbal, fruit, and wood notes. On the palate the wine shows decent fruit and herbal character but it lacks the finesse that the 2004 vintage showed in Rioja. The tannins are not overpowering but the balance of the wine is a little off. The tannins and alcohol do not seem to fully integrate with the fruit. This is a good wine but it is a noticeable change from the previous vintage. May improve with age.

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.

Marques de Caceres Crianza Rioja 2005 750ML

<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>
