2011 Bodegas Muriel Gran Reserva
Red Wine from Rioja, Spain
Red ruby color with a distinctive brick orange rim. It has an aromatic explosion of fine oak (vanilla, coffee, and spices), very mature fruit such as raisins, as well as caramel and subtle bottle aging sensations (leather and dry leaves). These aromas become more intense and complex as the wine begins to breathe. On the palate the wine is full of velvet silkiness and finesse. A classic Rioja that is only produced in superior vintages.
