Marques de Caceres Rioja Crianza 2014
Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha Tinta, 5% Graciano.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The trickle down effect from fruit normally destined for Reserva and Gran Reserva bottlings
wasn’t there in 2014 (unlike 2013), but this is a textbook modern Crianza, marrying
Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and 5% Graciano. Stylish, toasty oak and crunchy black
fruits with a note of liquorice spice. 2018-23. Alcohol: 13.5%
In 1970, Enrique Forner founded Marqués de Cáceres Unión Vitivinícola S.A., a historic alliance of growers in the village of Cenicero in the Rioja Alta subregion of Rioja. The enterprising Forner family has been devoted to the wine trade for five generations. Their search for the best vine growers and vineyards in Rioja and the introduction of a Bordeaux concept revolutionized the production and business model of the region. They work with one single objective: producing the highest quality wines. Today this obsession continues to be the leitmotif of Cristina Forner, the fifth generation of this distinguished wine family.
