Marqués de Cáceres 2014 Tempranillo “Excellens, Cuvée Especial, Rioja, Spain” ($20)
This superb buy is very strong on the attack with rounded body, appealing fruit, fine balance, attractive complexity, honed integration and pleasing length. Its medium tannins call for pairing with red meat.
Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
