Ratings: 92pts Parker; 91pt Wine Spectator; 91pts Suckling


Marques de Murrieta is named after Luciano de Murrieta, one of the founding fathers of modern Rioja winemaking, who established the estate in 1852. The winery is settled near the southern tip of the Rioja Alta in the middle of the beautiful Ygay Estate, a unique 300 hectare vineyard that guarantees complete control over the grape source of the wines and is the key to the quality and style of Marques de Murrieta. Their wine has scored 100pts by Parker. I absolutely loved this wine combining all the tradition of Rioja with the latest modern ways of making wine and managing their vineyards. The best of both worlds. Nothing is spared when it comes to quality. The wine is mainly Tempranillo, superbly round and rich, the perfect amount of oak and acidity. Time in the bottle has given the wine superb length and suppleness. This wine is a real crowd pleaser, I have served it on different occasions and bottles fly, great drinkability.

TASTING NOTES: A sleek texture delivers bright cherry and red plum flavors, with leafy, licorice and vanilla notes. Firm tannins and racy acidity give this focus. A fresh and energetic red. Drink now through 2025. 91pts Wine Spectator

Winemaker Notes: Tangible proof of elegance, balance and constancy characteristic of the Marques de Murrieta Winery and its surrounding vineyards situated in the Ygay Estate, it is a red Reserva wine with a balanced aging of two years in new and partly new American oak barrels and a year and a half in bottle. The result is an elegant wine that combines complexity and fineness, summing up the best attributes of Marques de Murrieta's identity and actuality. Drink 2018 2023
