2014 Marques de Caceres Rioja

April 13, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#16-18-PIE

We have enjoyed the Rioja wines from Spain for many years, and find them to be an excellent choice for a lighter red dinner wine. The predominate grape is always Tempranillo, if the wine is not 100% of that grape.

The Marques de Caceres is one which has always been dependable, and the 2014 vintage matches its lineage. The wine is a pretty medium red in color with a subtle nose suggesting spice and a touch of red berry. The flavor is mostly light cherry with a bit of red raspberry and undertones of vanilla and a little spice. The finish is clean and pleasant, with a small dose of mellow tannin in the end. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 87.

This Rioja is a great choice for pasta and grilled meat. A suggestion would be to pair it up with a thick juicy pork loin chop from the grill.

price : $11 - $15

score: 87
