“Aged 15 months in French oak, this blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% other varieties offers cherry-skin tannins and note of cherry pith and red tea. Red fruit is perfused with radiant notes of cedar, violets, and clove. Clay, limestone, and iron-rich soils show in a stony core surrounded by bittersweet dark chocolate. A labor-intensive beauty, the wine spends 22 months in barrel, with decanting every four to six months, before aging a minimum of two additional years in bottle.”-TP

Wine Spectator 92
“A rich red, marked by a mix of black cherry, blackberry, wild herbs and iron. This is mostly about the fruit, with a dense matrix of tannins providing structure. Fine length. Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta and Graciano.”-WS

James Suckling 92
“Aromas of blackberry, dark plum, roasted meat, dried herb, toffee and baking spice. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Concentrated and structured. Excellent balance. Vegan.”-JS

“Dark and dense ruby colour. Refined and complex aroma with a touch of cherry, vanilla and soft toasted notes. Balanced in the mouth, where the silky and well-defined tannins are combined with exquisite flavours to reveal a pleasant fullness.”-Winemaker Notes

“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.”-Winery Notes

Incredible

"Tart cherry, chewy tannins and rich black fruits. Its an incredible value. Ill be going back for a case. I'd rate it a 93. The tempranillo is bold, this wine is huge."
