Bodegas Muriel is one of four wineries owned by the Murua Family which has a history of dealing in wine dating back 85 years - making them a relative young gun in Rioja! Indeed it was only in 1986 that the existing bodega was established and production is now made from both purchased vineyards as well as imperative contract grower relationships forged all the while the family dealt in wine. This gets the 'Rolls Royce' treatment of mainly new French Oak and has a wonderful old world charm while remaining new world 'clean'!

This is a beautifully styled red, displaying gorgeous aromas of dark fruit, toasted hazelnut, game, cocoa and truffle on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate that is richly fruited and densely structured. The wine offers terrific power and intensity, brilliantly framed by silky texture and fine tannins. At its best: now to 2021; Price: $42.00 Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
