Mission Briefing

Codename:

Storied Spanish

Today’s Marques de Caceres 2008 Rioja Reserva is one to swoon over. Crafted only in the best vintages, this is one Reserva that truly lives up to the title.

Chock full of bold dark fruit and spicy terroir notes, today’s wine is everything we love in a Tempranillo. The La Guia Repsol Wine Guide, which is Spain’s equivalent to the Michelin Wine Guide, raved about today’s wine, awarding it 91 Points.

There are only a handful of cases left of today’s wine, and Agent Red was able to get his hands on every last one, so please hurry!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark, almost inky scarlet.

Smell:

Dark and rich aromas of black cherry and sweet plum leap from the glass, joined by hints of dark baking spices, sweet tobacco leaf, and dried rose petals.

Taste:

Concentrated and deep flavors of braised plum and freshly picked blackberry lead the way on the palate, with notes of sweet tobacco leaf, toasted sandalwood, dark baking spices, sage, rosemary, and a lingering echo of black peppercorn.

Finish:

A very lengthy finish, highlighted by fantastic structure and hints of barrel spice.

Pairing:

Grilled tuna, served with roasted red tomatoes and asparagus.
