K&L Notes

Though one of the oldest Rioja bodegas, dating back to the mid-19th century, Marqués de Murrieta is not resting on its laurels. They continue to produce excellent wines big hits with their customers and critics alike. They farm all their own grapes on their large, contiguous vineyard just outside of Logrono, which boasts old vines, a variety of terroir from chalky clay to very stony parcels, and a climate that particularly favors not only Tempranillo but some of the region's finest Mazuelo.

    This is a fresher, brighter take on Reserva Rioja with juicy red fruits pairing seemlessly with soft American oak. Once this bottling opens up I think it will show more breadth and density, but it's plenty intricate and tasty right now. This is an easy go-to for any Rioja fan from a very well respected producer.

    This has the exact flavor profile I expect when I think of Rioja. It's beautifully done. Earthy, loamy characters with deep brooding dark red fruits, leather, umami spice and cured meat. Medium bodied with lovely interplay between fruit and savory components. A good structural frame but accessible from the get-go. Fantastic value. A dependable wine that delivers the goods time and time again.

    This is as solid, consistent and tasty a bottle of old world, sub $20 red wine as you are likely to find. While we are clearly towards the top of the class for Rioja, the quality of Marqués de Murrieta's reserva bottling consistently places it favorably amongst other category leading, similarly priced reds. 2014 was a successful vintage, one that borrows a bit of the structure and reserve of the excellent 2010 vintage, while showing a trace of the precocious, savory flavor development of 2013. The freshness of this wine becomes particularly apparent on the mid palate, where red fruits join the dark skinned ones, and even more so on the poised and limestone marked finish.
