Winemaker Notes

A wine of limited production from an old single vineyard where very low yields are grown. It reflects a much more modern facet of Marques de Murrieta, a rigorous selection of the grapes, meticulous extraction and aging in new French oak barrels for a year and a half give this wine a harmonious and intense character.

It has a complex and velvety nose, with an explosion of aromas of wild fruits, dark chocolate and mineral notes, elegantly combined with the creamy toasting of its ageing in the new French oak barrels. An elegant and extraordinary wine which impresses in every way, with body and harmony, of magnificent balance which creates a powerful wine.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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 Spectator
This generous red delivers ripe plum and blackberry fruit, accented by dark chocolate and candied orange peel notes. Firm tannins and lively acidity impart structure. Expressive. Drink now through 2022.

Marques de Murrieta, Spain
Marques de Murrieta Winery Video
Marques de Murrieta is named after Luciano de Murrieta, one of the founding fathers of modern Rioja winemaking, who established the estate in 1852 in the world-renowned Rioja region of Spain. Today V. Dalmau Cebrian-Sagarriga, Count of Creixell, leads the family-owned company. With a vision of innovation and respect for tradition, Marques de Murrieta is rooted in strong, historical fundamentals that shape the vision and philosophy of this iconic Spanish brand. The winery is near the southern tip of the Rioja Alta in the middle of the beautiful Ygay Estate, a unique 300-hectare vineyard that guarantees complete control over the grape source and is the key to the quality and style of Marques de Murrieta wines.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

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.
