Winemaker Notes

Having a beautiful brick red ruby colour half layer which precedes an aromatic explosion with notes of aging (vanilla, roasted coffee, spices ...), ripe fruit (raisins, caramel) and very subtle notes of bottle aging: leather, dry leaves, tobacco, etc. As the wine opens out, the aromas become more intense. In the palate a smooth and silky, perfectly assembled taste is emphasized. It is very prolonged, with a sensation reminiscent of velvet and a pleasing aftertaste.

It’s a great Rioja classic, pairing perfectly with roasts - especially lamb-, chops barbecued on vine shoots, heavy food preparations (game stew, fish in sauce recipes) and of course, smoked or cured cheese. It also presents very attractive pairing with desserts and recipes dominated by chocolate.

Professional Ratings

  • 93
    Lots of subtle fruit character to this wine from an excellent vintage and now showing age. Medium to full body. Fine tannins and a flavorful finish.
  • 93

    Smooth and mature, with berry notes that present toasty, nicely aged flavors. Rich and balanced, this wine demonstrates how nicely Tempranillo responds to a little aging.

  • 92

    Ripe berry, prune and raisin aromas are at the core of a nose that’s also driven by coconut and vanilla accents. A rustic mouthfeel with grippy tannins frames savory, oaky red berry and plum flavors, while tobacco and vanilla notes are corralled by a drying finish. Drink through 2028.

  • 90

    Black cherry and plum flavors are ripe and juicy in this broad red, backed by licorice, espresso and mineral notes. Firm tannins and lively acidity give this a balanced structure. Drink now through 2026.

Bodegas Muriel, Spain
Bodegas Muriel Winery Video

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.

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
