Marques de Murrieta Reserva 1985

Member Review by LiamZurich:

I recently acquired 3 bottles of the 1985 vintage. Today in 2012 it is a 27 year old vintage. I didnt expect much and when first opened it was a tired old wine. However with decanting and allowing the wine to breath for 1 hour i was pleasantly surprised. Flavours of tea, caramel, rasberry and strawberry appeared but with a very short finish. None of the silky taste of a normal Marques de Murrieta remained but very interesting after 27 years. Looking forward to the next 2 bottles.

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.
