2012 Marques De Murrieta

Dalmau Reserva Rioja Spain

 Only 1 left!


The 2012 Dalmau Reserva--they call it their 'modern' red--is a wine that has evolved since the first vintage in 1994; it is now sourced from one single plot of vines, the Pago Canajas, within their Ygay Estate. The blend here is 70% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Graciano, and the aging is exclusively in new French oak barriques and it lasts some 19 months. The varieties of this wine are always aged separately and the blend is decided after the élevage; the blend is different according to the conditions of each harvest. This feels like a ripe and voluptuous vintage with aromas of blackberries and a minty hint, with an earthy touch. The palate is full-bodied with some earthy tannins, full of power.  Wine Advocate 93
