Bodegas Muriel was founded in 1982, when Julian Murua Entrena revived his father’s, Jose Murua’s winery (which dates back to 1926) located in the Rioja Alavesa one of the three subregions of the Rioja appellation. The cellars are in the historic village of Elciego, surrounded by some of the finest terroir in Rioja. Julian and his son combine traditional and modern winemaking techniques to coax the best out of their vines. All Bodegas Muriel wines are 100% Tempranillo. The macroclimate of the region, influenced by the Mediterranean, Continental and Atlantic, helps the vines produce very aromatic and elegant wines. The name Muriel comes from the combination of the family name, Murua, and the name of the town itself, Elciego.

Tasting notes
Aromas of licorice and spice mingle with notes of balsamic, dark red fruit and vanilla. Full-bodied with textured tannins on the finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2013)
The 2008 Reserva just feels very Rioja, with notes of leather, cedar, cigar box and a core of red and black fruit. The palate is fresh, with very good acidity, clean flavors and good persistence and length. This Reserva delivers very good value. Drink 2014-2018.

Technical notes
The berries were fermented in stainless steel vats with daily pump overs. The wine was racked three times and aged for 24 months in American oak.
