Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Muriel Crianza has a vivid medium cherry color. Very fine mature oak aromas, including vanilla, coconut and balsamic notes, combined with fruit and liquoricehints, as well as mature red fruit. The palate is full and elegant, leaving a very pleasant sensation in the finish. It is the perfect wine for everyday drinking.

About Bodegas Muriel:

Bodegas Muriel was founded in 1982, when Julian Murua revived his father's (Jose Murua) winery, which dates back to 1926 in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa (one of the three sub-regions that make up Spain's Rioja appellation). The cellars are in the quaint, historic village of Elciego, which is renowned for being surrounded by some of the best "terrior" in Rioja.

The name "Muriel" comes from the combination of the family name (Murua) and the name of the town itself (Elciego). Today, Julian and his son Javier run the winery with the mission to meld the long-held winemaking traditions of the region with new technologies and techniques in order to make wines that express the "best qualities" of the grapes coming from these fertile Riojan vineyards.
