Oh so yummy! Full-bodied and mouth-watering with rich, dark, ripe fruit and a lovely weave of oak. This wine is a blend of tempranillo, garnacha and mazuelo grapes. A Diana Krall wine: packs power in a velvet glove. Lovely long finish, like an encore for the senses.

Tempranillo Garnacha Mazuelo food pairings: black bean soup, short ribs, sharp cheddar, pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2006 Marqués De Murrieta Finca Ygay Reserva has intense aromas of dried cherry/black cherry, dark chocolate, oak, leather and faint vanilla. It is a medium to full-bodied, extra-dry, integrated to aged wine, with good acidity, refined tannins and a smooth and silky finish of long length. Drink as a sipper; now – 2020. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts – recommended due to both quality and value. Tasted July/13.

Very aromatic Tempranillo from the heart of Rioja. Fleshy, floral, round and ripe with lots of juicy flavour through the core.
