2012 Bodegas Muriel Gran Reserva
Red Wine from Rioja, Spain
Red ruby color with a distinctive brick orange rim. Deep and intense nose, showing vanilla notes, coffee, spices and ripe red fruit. Dry leaves, leather and nutty notes are from the bottle's aging period. The wine is balanced and silky. Exceptionally pleasant, with persistent, yet elegant aftertaste. Its complex and intense personality will make it evolve beautifully over the next few years.
