Grapes: 70% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Graciano.
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.
We recommend decanting the wine for 20 minutes and to enjoy it at around 16ºc -18ºC to let the wine breathe and show its full aromatic potential.
Pairing: Baked deer loin with cranberries, currants and red wine sauce; Oxtail cooked in red wine, clove and peppermint with cauliflower cream; Baked grouper with squid noodles in its own ink, carrots and sweet onions; Cured blue cheese with red wine compote and cherries; Black chocolate Truffles with Virgin Olive Oil drops and a hint of hot sauce.
