Item no. 110997
This wine exhibits a dense, bright cherry color. Appealing, big and spicy nose. Impressive stuff with outstanding aromatic of cherry and red fruit, mineral smoke and subtle oak notes. On the palace it reveals fleshy fruit, silky tannins, and subtle, spicy oak. Beautiful texture and outstanding balance.
Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2007 is a traditional Rioja wine crafted in the classic Murrieta signature style and enjoying all the benefits of modern winemaking philosophy, equipment and techniques. Made from Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano, this wine embodies ripe fruit qualities with a perfect balance of acidity, supple roundness on the palate and a hint of new oak.
The 2007 Reserva shows far greater pedigree than the 2006. The blend is approximately the same with an additional two months in American oak. It exhibits greater intensity on the nose with elegant red fruit, mingling with lavender and terracotta aromas. It is well-defined and speaks of its place. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, well-defined entry. Crisp red fruit, sage and a touch of orange rind vie for attention, while the oak is succinctly well-integrated. The cocoa-tinged finish is both satisfying and long. Drink 2014-2025.
