In 1970, Enrique Forner founded Marqués de Cáceres, Unión Vitivinícola, S.A., a historic Alliance between a region (Cenicero, La Rioja Alta), an enterprising family, the best vine growers and vineyards in La Rioja, and a Bordeaux concept which revolutionised the production and business model. Enrique had one objective - to obtain the best wines. This obsession continues to be the leitmotiv of Cristina Forner, the third generation of this wine family.

Tasting Notes

Powerful dark coloured layer. Intense bouquet with rich nuances of ripe dark berry fruits, bitter chocolate background, and toasted notes with clove. Invasion on the palate, great complex and well defined tannins. Recollection of pure dark chocolate, liquorice and eucalyptus. Firm and well defined structure that portrays a glimpse of its keeping potential.

Food Pairing

Lasagna, pizza and dishes with tomato-based sauces. Barbecue grilled-meats, smoky dishes. Grits, polenta, and dishes with corn as a major ingredient.
