More Wine Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2005 Marqués De Murrieta Finca Ygay Reserva, composed of 84% Tempranillo, 13% Garnacha and 3% Carignan (Mazuelo), is a medium to full bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of red currant, cherry, pine/oak and vanilla. It has a nice structure, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long, smooth finish. Though ready to drink now, this wine will age nicely for the next 10+ years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - an elegant traditional Rioja, with wood notes that are not overpowering - recommended buy. Tasted July/12.

84% tempranillo, 13% garnacha and 3% mazuelo. Bright red. Fresh red berry and spice aromas suggest a higher percentage of garnacha. Suave, energetic red berry flavors stain the palate, nicely braced by tangy mineral and spice qualities. The finish repeats the red fruit note and hangs on tenaciously. Score: 91 Source: Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
