Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. In 2012, their vineyards were marked by drought and low yields, making that year's grapes concentrated and fruity. This well-balanced and elegant wine has aromas of dark fruits and is highly rated by top wine experts such as James Suckling and Tim Atkin. This Gran Reserva pairs perfectly with game, red meat, grilled fish and dishes with rich sauces.

Reviews of Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva 2012
You have to open a few minutes before drinking it.
This red one was lighter that I had expected. Clear licorice and balsamic aromas of menthol. I enjoyed it quite long after the last sip.
