Marques de Caceres, Tempranillo, 2004

This Spanish wine from the Rioja region is a very good choice. At first, the Marques de Caceres smells a bit veggie-like -- a bit of turnip or so. Then, the powerful flavor hits the palate with nuances of berries and oak in a silky finish. This 2004 tempranillo wine has a dark ruby-red color. Goes well with meats, but worked just fine with my salad too. For $21 and an intense flavor, it's probably best saved for nice occasions.
