2010-Marques De Murrieta Finca Ygay Riserva
“Muhr-kays duh Moo-ree-yettuh Feen-kuh Ee-gay Ray-zare-vuh”
As one of the leaders of the Spanish wine renaissance, this flagship estate propelled a complacent region to international acclaim with this top vintage. Gone are the typical black olive, slightly gamey, tired fruit aromas that kept the region from popular respectability. Modern equipment and up to date agricultural practices have raised the standards to international norm. Fantastic with Spanish dishes (especially Jamon, Lomo and Paella), Mediterranean or Southwestern cuisine dishes. A veritable rising star bargain find.
