Item Description

"Dense color with brilliant highlights, this Reserva shows a renovated style within a category labeled as “classic” Rioja. On the nose, black fruits of the forest come through with a depth of chocolate and notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Fleshy sensations on the palate; rich fruit and a tannic structure mingle in a pleasant fullness. Round and smooth with milky flavors combining roasted coffee and a very fine trace of leather that remain on the palate."-Winemaker's Notes

"Founded in 1970, with its first release in 1975, Marqués de Cáceres the Rioja bodega was established by Henri Forner, whose family has been active in the wine business for generations. The winery is named for a Spanish peer who was also an investor in the winery and a friend of Henri Forner.
The Forner family fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War and settled in France. In the early 1960s, Henri Forner and his brother Elysée bought and restored two abandoned châteaux, Château Camensac and Château Larose-Trintaudon. These châteaux are now recognized as two of the finest properties in Bordeaux. When Henri decided to establish a bodega in his homeland, he selected what he considered the finest viticultural area in Spain: Cenicero in Rioja Alta.

Emile Peynaud, former professor and chief wine researcher at the University of Bordeaux, was initial consultant to the winery. Today, Michel Rolland is wine consultant at Marqués de Cáceres and Henri and his daughter, Christine, are at the helm. The vinification methods at Bodegas Marqués de Cáceres are similar to those used in Bordeaux. Thus, French winemaking techniques and expertise have been applied to native Spanish grapes to produce one of the finest modern Riojas."-Winery Notes
