Dark garnet color and a nose of cherry and earth; smooth, bright, and juicy with mature notes of plum and spice. Balanced and complex, long and complete.
Mixing fruit from the various villages in the Rioja Alta with 15% fruit from Laguardia and Lanciego, this stylish, Tempranillo-dominated Reserva is made to a commendably consistent quality. Aged in French oak, it's dense, concentrated yet refreshing with bramble, black cherry and nutmeg flavors and fresh acidity. 2021-28
Aromas of ripe berries and plums with spices and toasted oak, as well as dried flowers, following through to a full body with chewy tannins and a tannic finish. Lots of fruit and tannins still. Another year or two will soften it. Try in 2021.
Deep, shimmering ruby. Ripe cherry and red currant on the highly perfumed nose, accompanied by building vanilla and spice nuances. Taut, focused and youthfully wound up, reluctantly offering bitter cherry, red berry, mocha and spice cake qualities and a smoky top note. The impressively long, penetrating finish features youthful, gripping tannin's and resonating red currant and spice notes. By all means give this one some time, or at least a good amount of air if you plan on opening it any time soon. Drinking window: 2025 - 2035
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.
