The 2016 Bodegas Muriel Fincas de la Villa Reserva Rioja is sourced from vineyards in the Alavesa region of northern Rioja. The wine begins with a nose that is intense and complex, with a ripe red fruit bouquet and fine touches of the aging such as spice, coffee, and vanilla. The palate is balanced and elegant while maintaining a good level of freshness.
