Marqués de Cáceres Rioja Crianza 2016
|Brand||Marqués de Cáceres|
Deep ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice and a hint of vanilla on the fragrant nose, along with a subtle floral topnote. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering plush blackberry and cherry flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. Rich and open-knit, delivering solid closing thrust, slow-building, harmonious tannins and very good, dark-fruit-dominated persistence.
A thick texture carries savory flavors of black olive, dried herb and loamy earth in this big red. Cola and licorice notes wreathe a core of plum and currant. Solid. Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano. Drink now through 2032.
