2008 Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Reserva

2008 Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Reserva. This is all blackberry bramble and jam. Quite dense, tannic and young. When I first opened this, I really liked it but on night two, I found it slightly austere and jammy at the same time. Not sure how that is even really possible. In any event, it is a decent wine at ~$18 here at Spec’s in Austin, but there is no reason to run out and get more of this as it lacks sone balance IMO.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
