Bodegas Muriel Rioja Reserva 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2013 wine is a ruby red color, with good intensity. The fruit in the nose and palate are very clean and mature (red fruits dominate) along with hints of liquorice, on a background of spice and vanilla notes from the wood aging. The palate is balanced, round, elegant and velvety,showing finesse and a very long, satisfying finish.Winemaker’s Notes:Selected grapes from Rioja Alavesa and Alta vineyards. Soils are a very poor, chalky type with a clayish-sandy texture. The vines have a medium age of 40 years and are grown using the traditional “goblet” system. Twenty to 25 days of fermentation and maceration in stainless steel,temperature-controlled vats with daily pump-overs in order to achieve the optimum color and tannic extraction. Malolactic fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks and then the wine is racked twice before going into oak barrels. The wine is aged in American and Frenchoak barrels for 24 months. There is further bottle aging for 12 months prior to release.Serving Hints:Ideal all type of grilled and roasted meats. It also matches well with strong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Tasty with chocolate desserts.

Leather, some subtle earth, dry tobacco leaves, peppery blackberry and raspberry on the nose. Flavors of ripe berry and some cherry combined with earth. It tastes quite fresh, with nice forward fruit. But, it doesn't sacrifice the grounding earth, tobacco, and leather qualities. Well balanced with refreshing acidity and a sold tannic frame.

dried fruit notes mixed with green and red peppers, a bit vegetale, leathery developments, a nuttiness, very delicate and sophisticated with a nice long length

A lot of vanilla oak here, and just enough berry fruit to hold it together. A fun, easy drink, with just a wee bit of tongue-tingling tannin to make it semi-serious.
