Marques de Caceres Rioja Crianza 2010
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
crisp acidity, citrus fruits, a little spritz, light and easy drinking
Golden straw bright, fresh aromas of citrus, pear and mineral; palate notes of creamy citrus, crisp white fruits and lanolin riding bright, almost sweet tones across a moderate finish.
External Reviews for Marques de Caceres Rioja Crianza
A rich full bodied wine with spicy aromas, berry fruit flavors, and a velvety finish.
This, rich full-bodied wine is made only in excellent vintages from hand-picked Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano grapes grown in Rioja Alta. Aged in French and American oak casks, Marques de Caceras Red Crianza has spicy aromas, berry fruit flavors and a velvety finish. Open preferably one hour before serving with hearty dishes, roasts, grilled meats or tapas.
Ripe peach and melon aromas are complemented by notes of floral honey and clove. Juicy, gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are braced by a dusty mineral quality and pick up a note of smoky herbs with air.
Intense ruby color. Expressive bouquet with notes of raspberries, bilberries and cherries, enlivened by a touch of spice and a depth of vanilla. Charming fruit in the mouth with good structure that highlights concentrated flavors and fleshy tannins. Nice complexity on the tasting resulting in good length. This Crianza is made from our best cuvees from the 2008 vintage and conserves in full the character derived from top quality grapes. This focused red is subtle but harmonious, with well-integrated flavors of black cherry, toast, herbs and spice layered over fine tannins. Crisp and fresh. Drink now through 2014. 90,000 cases imported. - Winery
