£11.40/ 0.75 L btl
A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, the wine is deep ruby-red in colour. Aromas of red fruits abound on the nose and impart freshness, enveloped in a background of vanilla and sweet spices. It is clean and lively on the palate, which is meaty and full of flavour, with ripe tannins blended in well and a good, harmonious structure.
Aged for 12 months in oak barrels and subsequently for at least 14 months in bottle.

Marques de Caceres Crianza
Primarily we discovered an oaky, smokey flavour. Once aerated there is a particularly oaky flavour with a strong hint of dark fruits such as plum and cherry. This is a structured wine with light tannin's, dry, peculiar, with a warm, intense feeling. The taste does not linger. A real thinker, smooths with time, with some depth. A one for the mature palate

We drank this wine on our vacation in Spain, hard to fault the quality and price. So pleased we found it on Vinissimus site with a sensible price to match including shipping.
A really nice wine always. Reliably good and great value for the quality. Highly recommended this wine and will definitely be buying it again.
Great wine, fast delivery
Great wine, great price, fast delivery, excellent choices. Wines for all tastes, very reasonably priced, much better than supermarket plonk..
