Bodegas Muriel Gran Reserva 2006
Wine SpectatorDried cherry, licorice, tobacco and tea flavors mingle in this maturing red. The texture is round and polished, with a light grip and bright, orange peel acidity. Harmonious and still vibrant. Drink now through 2018. 300 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastTobacco, mocha, lemony oak and red-fruit aromas comprise a good, traditional Rioja bouquet. The mouthfeel is pinched and raw, while herb, tomato and dried raspberry flavors carry the palate to an earthy, mossy conclusion. Drink this very good Rioja now through 2018.
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Fincas de la Villa Gran Reserva had a very young cork, as if it had been recorked. It's a classical, developed and tertiary Rioja with some notes of old oak, with a classical label and the golden wiring and everything. The palate is polished and light, with some tannins, moderate freshness and persistence. I'd drink this sooner rather than later. 40,000 bottles produced.
