Marqués de Cáceres 2004 MC (Rioja)

This wine is Cáceres' attempt at a modern (yet for the masses) Rioja, and frankly it's not working. The bouquet is nothing but an avalanche of coconut and butter, which stems from the barrel regimen the wine goes through. And the palate is loud, chunky and clumsy. Yes, there's big fruit and bulk; but it's grabby, oversized and overoaked. Michael Schachner
