Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Ygay 1970

Winemaker's Notes:

"The surprisingly youthful, exuberant 1970 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial possesses a remarkably deep ruby color as well as a pronounced nose of fresh mushrooms and toasty new American oak. The wine narrows in the mouth, but it provides cherry, cedary, and leathery-infused fruit. It is hard to believe this wine is thirty years old as it appears capable of lasting another decade." Robert Parker, WA 8/01 "This ripe red is still rich and vibrant, with a core of cherry and a velvety texture that indicate it still has life. The exotic coffee, walnut and orange peel flavors remind me of a fine Oloroso Sherry. An essential taste experience for fans of traditional Rioja. Drink now...93" WS 12/99

Marques de Murrieta:
Marques de Murrieta is a family business in an almost "romantic" sense of the world. This project is a way of life, where is impossible to cut the ties that bind our wines and our family.
