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.
loaded with red raspberries, red currants, a little red spice, maybe some sour cherry, nice acidity and balance of flavors, and I think has some more potential
Tar and fig. Earthy with a well balanced finish.
No detailed notes, but amazing QPR.
Nice fruit in this wine with black cherry, berry, and plum flavors. Just a hint of spice with an accent of vanilla. This wine has a smooth mouthfeel but it isn't too big or overdone. Silky tannins give the wine a nice structure. I really enjoyed this wine.
Slight tobacco nose, with blueberries, cedar, and raisin filtering through and continuing on the palate. 4/5 tannins, 3/5 acidity, with a "deep" finish. Very good. Would pair well with any meat.
A little hot on the nose at first but after letting it stand for 20 minutes in the glass it shows an earthy, leathery nose with a touch gaminess. Very smooth on the palate with nice acidity and a good amount of tannin. Tempranillo shines through with a ton of grip and a long, smooth and velvety finish. I had some cheese and crackers with this but I feel it would go wonderfully with wild game. A local liquor store has this for $13 a bottle right now and I think I just may meander back over there tomorrow and get a case of this stuff. Excellent. 4.0 rating.
Costco c. $25 - transformed within a few minutes of opening: sweat, leather, tobacco, pepper and stewed cherries. Within another ten minutes, the cherries had faded into plums and mint. My friend said allspice - it did finish with some heat. But the second day open was not as kind - the magic didn't last for long apparently although the stewed cherry, plum and pepper remained - fortunately I have another bottle.
External Reviews for Marqués de Cáceres White Blend Rioja Blanco
Rioja Gran Reserva that’s full-bodied and densely layered. Produced only in the best vintages, Gran Reserve must be aged at least 5 years before release. This one from the well known house of Marques de Caceres was aged in French oak for 28 months and then four more years in the bottle before release. The result is an intense and complex wine that’s fully ready to be enjoyed. The tannins are supple and soft and the flavors go on and on. Selected as #44 on the Wine Enthusiast Magazine Top 100 for 2008, enjoy this rare Spanish red with rack of lamb or ripe cheeses.

Dark red. Smoky cherry, candied plum, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers on the nose, plus a subtle undertone of vanilla. Medium-bodied red fruit flavors are sweetened by vanilla and cola, with dusty tannins adding grip. Gains flesh on the finish and ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2001 Marques de Caceres Rioja Gran Reserva 750ml
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.
Pleasantly firm tannins play against a myriad of ripe red fruit which is balanced by rich notes of chocolate and coffee. A mint and dark fruit nose gives way to a generous texture and a vanillin finish. Great for those looking to experiment in hearty Spanish reds.
This well-structured red delivers deep flavors of plum tobacco mineral and spice over firm tannins. A bit austere but shows complexity and harmony with a spicy floral finish. Drink now through 2012.
