Marqués de Murrieta is above all an excellent, harmonious wine, with a fragrant nose and a silky mid palate. Made with the varieties: tempranillo, graciano, mazuelo and garnacha, it is a constant example of the wine that best defines the style of the winery: elegance, balance and regularity. With a bright cherry color, on the nose it offers refined fruit aromas that combine perfectly with floral, balsamic, spicy notes and hints of oak precisely measured by expert hands. Its mouth is juicy and rich, with elegance and slightly toasted. Its tannins go unnoticed thanks to its perfect integration with its fruit and a very pleasant acidity that gives it a journey.

I also tasted an unbottled sample of the 2016 Rioja Reserva, which should be bottled in a couple of months, before the summer. What I tasted was the final blend, and it represents the year-2016 was a cooler year, and the wine also goes in that direction. 2016 saw a large crop, and the grapes for this cuvée were harvested at the end of September, going toward more finesse and subtleness, combined with the natural power. There was a change in the winery in 2016 that was finalized in 2018 with the new winery. The wine is textured and fine, and it's more elegant than the 2015 I tasted next to it. The detail and texture on the palate is different, and the quality of the tannins is completely different. This should be released in early 2020. There will be almost 1.1 million bottles of this, which is remarkable, as they have managed to increase quality and quantity.
