The 2008 Muriel Reserve is a ruby red color. It has good intensity and balanced vanilla notes from oak maturation. The palate boasts mature red fruits along with hints of liquorice and spice. The palate is round, velvety and elegant, with a very long, satisfying finish.
Pair with all types of grilled and roasted meats. It also matches well with strong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Tasty with chocolate desserts and puddings.
"Menthol and eucalyptus on the nose. More classic aromas come through with aeration. Savoury, traditional style with toasted nuts and coffee, delicate coconut and ripe, baked plum fruit. A great, classic Rioja. Complex and intriguing.
