Marqués de Cáceres Gran Reserva 2012
|Brand||Marqués de Cáceres|
A supple nose is loaded with ripe black-fruit aromas that accurately reflect a warm vintage. A thick palate is tannic and on the heavy side, again reflective of the year. Blackberry, plum and toast flavors remain on stage through a dry finish with simmering tannins. Drink through 2028.
Cedar, tar and tobacco notes give this firm red a savory character, framing currant, licorice and tarragon flavors with firm tannins and balsamic acidity. An austere style, but has the balance and depth to bloom with food. Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta and Graciano. Drink now through 2024. 16,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
