Marqués de Cáceres Rioja Reserva 2009


SKU 01599


Blessed by the superb 2009 harvest, this wine has a dark, dense colour. Intense, complex bouquet that confirms its ageing in quality oak: powerful aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants with a depth of toasted notes that blend with very fine oak. Pleasantly full on tasting with concentrated flavours. Clearly a wine of character and structure but with a nice, fleshy texture. Classy and elegant with good potential for ageing.

Wine Spectator"Smart Buy" This generous red delivers ripe plum and currant fruit, with notes of toast, licorice and loam. Firm tannins impart structure, while the juicy acidity keeps this lively. Drink now through 2018.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with rich, slightly soupy aromas that announce ripeness. The palate is full yet crimped by firm tannins, while flavors of creamy vanilla, lactic oak, tomato and plum are forward and finish strong. As a young reserva from a warm vintage should, this improves with airing. Drink from 2014-2018.

Wine AdvocateThe dark plum/ruby-colored 2009 Reserva reveals slightly more depth and richness along with sweet red and black currant, herb, licorice and toast notes in the nose. Already drinking well, this fully mature 2009 is best consumed over the next 2-3 years.
