Muriel Fincas de la Villa Reserva Rioja 2015
Looking for a bold, fruity red with a smidge of earth and baking spice with velvety smooth tannins? And you want to spend under $20? Yeah, we can do that.
Decanter: "An explosion of dried fruit, wild strawberries and dark chocolate; exceptionally smooth and supple with a very long, flavoursome finish. Drinking window 2020 - 2024." Mar 2020
James Suckling: "Plenty of dried flowers, dark berries and sandalwood on the nose. Full body. Firm and silky tannins. Gorgeous finish. Drink or hold." Jul 2019
Wine Spectator: "This generous red is rich and round, with ripe tannins and orange peel acidity. Cherry, dried currant, licorice, vanilla and spice flavors are ample yet focused. A balance of traditional and modern styles. Drink now through 2030. 600 cases imported." Apr 2020
Winery: "Classic ruby red color with brick tones. Very complex and intense nose, with fine aromas from the aging process perfectly assembled: vanilla, spices and aromatic herbs. Memories of a very ripe fruit appear. On the palate it is a balanced and very fine wine, with a polished and elegant body and a very long and pleasant aftertaste. It pairs especially well with roast lamb, cutlets with vine shoots, fish in sauce and smoked and cured cheeses. Excellent wine to accompany desserts with chocolate."
