Marques de Caceres, Rioja, Reserva 2002 The nose shows some of the herbaceousness that can be found with Tempranillo along with vanilla and cherries dabbed with brown sugar and baked in a pie.
The mouth is bright with cherries and structure, youthful. Yet at the same time there is the complexity of age, fruit that is coming into a raisined profile adding depth – very nice.
The fruit is a high proportion of old vine Tempranillo aged about 2 years in French oak and at least 2 years in bottle before release. 14% purchased for $24.49 at Bottle Barn Caceres
