This Marques de Murrieta Gran Reserva is temporanillo led blend cherry pie like taste and a long finish. Beautiful wine just entering a nice long drinking window.

Very robust. Starting with sweet but moves to dry and earthy. I would only eat it with red meat

The ‘11 Ygay is drinking like a classic. It’s a big, oaky blend that’s deep ruby in color with scents of graphite and cocoa. Deep dark flavors with firm tannins and a hint of vanilla. Still has lots of legs.

I wish I could have tasted it with more airtime. Full of fruit and structure. Give it time.
