Marques de Murrieta Rioja Reserva Dalmau 2004

Marques de Murrieta Rioja Reserva Dalmau 750ml 2004     
Sku: 1447158*

To speak about Dalmau is to speak about Canajas, a unique single vineyard within our 741-acre (300-hectare) Ygay Estate. The vines in that vineyard are more than 50 years old and are located at over 480 meters above sea level. Long maceration during fermentation, ageing in new French oak barrels and very limited production characterize the wine. This modern Rioja wine made from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano perfectly reflects the innovations taking place at Marques de Murrieta.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Apr 2008)
The 2004 Dalmau Reserva is sourced from a single 50+ year old plot within the 300 hectare Ygay estate. Made from a blend of 86% Tempranillo, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Graciano, the wine was aged for 21 months in new French barriques. Dark ruby/purple-colored, it reveals an aromatic array of toasty new oak, spice box, mineral, blueberry, and black currants. Considerably more powerful than its traditionally made siblings, on the palate if is full-bodied, firm, layered, and quite concentrated. The spicy flavors fall on the dark side of the spectrum with blackberry, plum, and black currant in the forefront. The wine has at least a decade of aging potential and will be at its peak from 2015 to 2030 although it can be enjoyed now with a charcoal-grilled ribeye.

Food pairing
Dalmau pairs well with red meats and roasts and is particularly well-suited for veal. It is excellent with soft and delicate cheeses. We recommend you decant the wine half an hour before serving it at 16 to 18 C.
