Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This is utterly spectacular. So pure and satisfying now, why wait? The ripe black cherry, damson plum, glycerine, fresh herb, black liquorice, new leather and soft oak notes all blend together so well. Perfect with lamb. 94 Points
Marqués de Cáceres Reserva 2012 is a 85% Tempranillo, 10% Grenache and 5% Graciano full-bodied red wine blend from the Rioja Alta wine region. Look for ripe black cherry, floral, earthy, savoury flavours with some dried tobacco notes and an orange zesty finish. Tannins are well-integrated and this wine is very approachable now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews
