Marques de Murrieta Rioja Reserva 2012


SKU 23706


Tangible proof of elegance, balance and constancy characteristic of the Marques de Murrieta Winery and its surrounding vineyards situated in the Ygay Estate, it is a red reserva wine with a balanced aging of two years in new and partly new American oak barrels and a year and a half in bottle. The result is an elegant wine that combines complexity and fineness, summing up the best attributes of our identity and actuality. Marqués de Murrieta is more than a brand in the international market, it represents age-old wisdom expressed in one of the most recognized wines of Spain. With our daily work, respect and love for our land, the selection of the best grapes and the attention to detail throughout its almost four years of production, Marqués de Murrieta is a safe and constant value of the best quality. Food Pairing: Oven baked sea bass, potatoes and vegetables; Fresh cod poached in virgin olive oil, potatoes and green peppers; Steamed shade fish, peas puree and cheese soup; Oven baked suckling pig with candied orange sauce.

James SucklingTerrific aromas of currants, berries, cinnamon and perfume. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a dense palate. Superb length and refinement. Compact. Super length. Superb quality considering the price. More delicate and refined than the 2010. Precise.

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Murrieta's wines have been on a good run in recent years, as evidenced by this saturated, fleshy Reserva. The nose delivers berry and cherry aromas, with ample oak. The palate is a full-volume bonanza of berry flavors framed by briary spice and toasty oak. A naturally spicy, ripe finish confirms its excellence; drink 2018-2026.

Wine Spectator This red is light but firm, with juicy acidity driving the berry, cherry, sandalwood and vanilla flavors. Compact and harmonious, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2022. 12,000 cases imported.
