Wine Marqués de Murrieta Reserva:
Colour: Pretty picota cherry colour, high robe, clean and bright. A fine and elegant tear.
Nose: A high intensity, expressive and aromatic nose. An almost perfect balance between the ripe red and brilliant fruity notes, and the aromas brought by its passage through barrels: elegant toasted nuances, fine spices and light animal touches.
Taste: Warm on the palate. Intense and deep, with a large personality. A perfect blend of ripe fruits balanced with woods. It has fine, well-structured velvety tannins, soft bitterness, and good acidity. Long, persistent and pleasant finish.
