Marqués de Cáceres Rioja Crianza 2017 750mL JSJames Suckling
Nice depth with a luminous sparkle. A bouquet of fine notes of toasted wood and spices, combined with red candied fruit on a licorice base. Full-bodied on the palate with a background of ripe fruit and smooth elegant tannins. A long silky aftertaste.
Sweet blackberry, blueberry and bark aromas follow through to a full body with a compact palate of medium, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drinkable now, but better with a year of bottle age.
Vegan: They use Bentonite, which is a clay, commonly used in filtering wines.
Attractive color with luminous highlights. Soft spice and refined oak on the nose with a depth of jammy red berry fruits. Luscious and intense on tasting with pleasant tannins that mingle with fresh and mature fruit. Finishes with delicious, long-lasting flavors.-Winemaker
