K&L Notes

Though it's one of the oldest Rioja bodegas, dating back to the mid-19th century, Marqués de Murrieta has not rested on its laurels. They continue to produce excellent wines that are big hits with their customers and critics alike. They farm all their own grapes on their large, contiguous vineyard just outside of Logroño, which boasts old vines, a variety of soils 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 wine smells so good. The nose swirls out of the glass with aromatics of dark cherries, old leather, oak, grandma’s spice rack, and earth. It’s all there and nothing dominates. One note jumps out only to have your attention drawn to something else over and over. Mouthwatering. That is the most succinct adjective for this nose. - As great as the nose is, it is so much better on the palate. This wine is screaming good right out of the gates. The fruit tones are dark and pure, They are balanced against earthy, spice, and oak tones. The tannins are polished and are fully integrated into the wine. The freshness and - drive but the acidity doesn’t have an edge. Effortless and fully integrated, this is an ideal Rioja. - This is a perfect introduction to anyone who is curious to try something new. For those of us who are already familiar, this is an exciting new expression. And for us collectors a fair warning, you might want to buy more than you normally would. This wine rivals the 2010, do you remember how good that was? And it drinks even better while it is young. I cannot wait to see what this wine is like with some extra time but keeping your hands off it will require effort.

    What a great vintage from Marques de Murrieta! The lush nose has scents of cassis, boysenberry, earth, and pipe tobacco. Interesting and very pretty. On the palate, dark, black cherries, cassis and baking spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). There is also a long finish with fine tannin and a very light hint of minerals. Great stuff! Not to be missed. I hear it crying out "pork!, pork! pork!". Barbecued, grilled, or roasted. I'm not even a pork enthusiast (ok, bacon is a big YES) but, that is what this wine says to me.
