    Originally founded in 1926, Bodegas Muriel is located next to the town of Elciegoin the heart of the Rioja Alavesaregion. This family owned winery makes wine with pride and the utmost care, ensuring a level of quality guaranteed to delight even the most demanding palate. A rare release from the excellent 2001 vintage, which Robert Parker rated Outstanding -94 points. Tiny amounts of this impressive wine were made from a few parcels of ancient vines on the highest slopes of the sun-drenched, terraced vineyards. These ancient plots yield complex, multi-layered wines, rarities well worth tracking down. Powerful damson and berry fruit, earthy truffles and nutmeg and a complex finish that lingers for hours. The winery believes that this vintage, while ready to drink now, will reach its peak within a few years. If you love Rioja wines, this is one that should be hauled into your cellar by the caseload.
    We were only able to get 60 cases of this stunning wine from Bodegas Muriel.
    Please don't miss your chance to secure this superb Gran Reserva!
