Producer: Marques de Caceres  
Region: Rioja, Spain 
Varietal: Tempranillo  
Year: 2016 

Tasting Panel, 93 Points 

"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." 

Wine Spectator, 92 Points 

"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. Best from 2024." 

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"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. Drink from 2023." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Dark and dense ruby color. 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 flavors to reveal a pleasant fullness." 

Alcohol: 14%
