A Reserva Rioja from a traditional Rioja producer. This Tempranillo (blended with small amounts of Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano) is aged 2 years in new and artly new American oak barrels and a 1 year and a half in bottle. Elegant wine with complexity and fineness. Intense balsamic notes of incense, smoked meat, leather, fennel and cherries. Medium-bodied, balanced, with excellent acidity and freshness. A serious vintage of Murrieta Reserve that represents great balance between tradition and modernity.
