Food Pairings for Marques de Caceres Rioja Satinela Semi Dulce
Editorial Reviews for Marques de Caceres Rioja Satinela Semi Dulce
Lots of oak on the nose here, sweet, vanilla rich, with slightly heavy damp wood tones and some dirty base notes with some bruised orchard fruit character. A bit lean on entry with noticeable acid and relatively pronounced and somewhat murky tannins in the mouth. There’s some nice fruit here a touch plummy at first with a lot of burnished wood accenting notes. The tannins are dry and fairly unrelenting , keeping the fruit at bay while the finish reveals more wood influenced flavors with a sour cherry underlay. A bit clumsy but well made if you love woody Crianza. A touch raw on the finish 84pts
Great wine at a good price. I picked up a bottle for $10. Would go wonderfully with a steak or other similarly hearty dish. Does not taste good with garlic though.
My Rating 86. Compared to the price this wine does not deliver. hint of Carbonation in the beginning, astringend taste with little complexity. The nos is short but well balanced and promises more than I could taste
Cherry notes on the nose, although it doesnt offer much. Its a very soft, approachable and rounded wine, with some residual sugar keeping it smooth. Paired fine with fish and chips
Served slightly chilled. Nice floral and pear notes. Light-bodied with crisp acidity and a nice, clean finish. Great quality to price ratio.
Cherry dominated nose and very herby with a slight whiff of cinnamon. Very light tasting and easy to drink but still had a good amount of spice at the end. slightly sour taste but in a good way
The wine had a light gold color with legs. On the nose, all of the aromas were fairly light, but I found grapefruit, green apple, and floral scents, with the smallest hint of peaches. In the mouth, the wine was more flavorful than the aromas let on. I found white blossoms, grapefruit, lime, and apple mixed with some mineraliness. The wine was light bodied and neutral tasting with a medium acidity, so it was pleasant and refreshing without being overpowering. For my complete review, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/ZFxYT
Well, it says $35 above , which is surely wrong. I have seen this around consistently in the low $ teens, and I bought this for $9.99 on sale (and it is pretty good for that price). Has a little bit of the buttered/glazed pastry aroma, along with a cured meats vibe. On the palate, definitely a salted/cured meats taste, along with a little spiciness as time went on. It's also a little salty tasting, and became more so with dinner. So I tried it later with some Italian dry salami, and it worked well with that-the saltiness of the salami didn't overwhelm it, and it cut the saltiness of the wine, and brought out the fruit. I have read many say it's good with Tapas, and Tapas tends to feature cured meats and anchovies, so I would imagine they're spot on.. I would call this Off-Dry, with well-integrated tannins that you don't really notice until they dry your mouth a little after drinking. And it seems well balanced. I would say this is a high-floor, not-so-high ceiling wine. So unless it's matched with the perfect pairing, its not aiming for the stars, but it seems very well-made and sure to deliver a good level of quality for the price,

This round red offers ripe plum, vanilla and light tobacco flavors on a plump frame. Clean and fresh, with just enough tannins for grip. Drink now through 2010.
Round, clean and a tough leathery, but not penetrating or dense. For a nice, smooth red wine with some plum and cinnamon spice, look no further. This crianza is easygoing, lightly oaked and good throughout.
If you like a consistently good, reasonably-priced Rioja, Marqués de Cáceres should be a household name. The 2003 Crianza is smoky yet fruity, perfectly balanced, and maintains the elegance and finesse Riojas are famous for. The smooth tannins, layered chocolate, black fruit and mushroom notes make this a perfect dinner wine - an excellent companion to paella or roast chicken.
A full-bodied red with spicy aromas and berry fruit flavors with rich notes of chocolate and coffee. It has velvety soft, silky tannins and a long, smooth finish.
Lusciously fresh and fruity on the palate with strawberries and raspberries. A perfect accompaniment to paella, chorizo or ham.
88 Points Stephen Tanzer: Pale yellow. Lemon and lime on the nose with deeper pear and apple character building with air. Pliant orchard fruit and melon flavors are brightened by tangy citrus zest and quinine with gentle back-end spiciness. Clean nicely focused wine with a late arriving note of white pepper. This is pretty refreshing.
