2007 Marques de Murrieta Reserva
On the nose this wine delivers aromas of rich ripened tobacco, black plum, ripe blackberry, and a touch of anise. The creamy like woody essence lingers in the background from the use of the all powerful American oak barrique.
On the palate the wine is stunningly luxurious and silky in texture. Flavors of earthy blackberry, tobacco, black tea, overripe plum skin, and creamy oak feature in a complex and intense experience. This wine has a finish that sails on with notes of sandalwood and prune. 91 points
