Marqués de Cáceres Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 2007

Member Review by CJLew:

Well, it says $35 above , which is surely wrong. I have seen this around consistently in the low $ teens, and I bought this for $9.99 on sale (and it is pretty good for that price). Has a little bit of the buttered/glazed pastry aroma, along with a cured meats vibe. On the palate, definitely a salted/cured meats taste, along with a little spiciness as time went on. It's also a little salty tasting, and became more so with dinner. So I tried it later with some Italian dry salami, and it worked well with that-the saltiness of the salami didn't overwhelm it, and it cut the saltiness of the wine, and brought out the fruit. I have read many say it's good with Tapas, and Tapas tends to feature cured meats and anchovies, so I would imagine they're spot on.. I would call this Off-Dry, with well-integrated tannins that you don't really notice until they dry your mouth a little after drinking. And it seems well balanced. I would say this is a high-floor, not-so-high ceiling wine. So unless it's matched with the perfect pairing, its not aiming for the stars, but it seems very well-made and sure to deliver a good level of quality for the price,

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.
