Muriel Gran Reserva, Spain, 2004 Just released in LCBO Vintages $24.95

The 2004 Gran Reserva is sourced from an average of 40-year-old vines and sees thirty months in American and French oak. It offers a mocha-scented bouquet with a metallic seam infusing the dark red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannins and a pleasant, harmonious, fleshy finish. There are hints of maraschino, orange zest and blueberry lingering, and I suspect that this primal Gran Reserva that will age nicely over the next decade.
