The Bodegas Muriel Reserva is a clear, ruby red color, with good intensity, boasts a perfect blend between intense fruit aromas, like strawberries and blueberries, and vanilla, balsamic scents and spices, due to fine oak maturation. The palate is round, velvety and mouthfilling, with a very long, satisfying finish.
Ideal all type of grilled and roasted meats. It also matches well with strong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Or, with tasty with chocolate desserts and puddings.
The 2005 Muriel Reserva was aged in French and American oak for 24 months followed by 2 years of bottle aging prior to release. Medium ruby red in color, it displays a similar but more complex bouquet than the Crianza. Nicely developed traditional Rioja aromas are followed by a medium-bodied, smooth-textured, dense wine with plenty of savory fruit, a firm underpinning, and plenty of length. It is likely to evolve for several years and is a good candidate to see its 20th birthday.
