This iconic red Rioja from Marques de Caceres Reserva has a wonderfully complex palate, with dense black fruit, and sweet spices flavours. On the nose a blend of toasted wood, vanilla and hints of spice, combined with notes of stewed black fruits . Round, pleasant, with soft tannins. Lengthy and round finish.
