93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The red blend 2015 Rioja Reserva is 80% Tempranillo with 12% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo and 2% Garnacha, a little more Graciano and Mazuelo, something logical in ripe and warm years like 2015. It's produced with grapes from a diversity of the 30 different plots within the estate, to represent the character of if. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in American oak barrels for 18 months. It's spicy and somewhat balsamic, with some dusty tannins. It's a ripe and powerful vintage that only suffers next to the 2016 I tasted next to it when there's a jump in precision and finesse. This is by far the largest volume produced at Murrieta, with almost one million bottles." -LG, 6/28/19

"Cedar, tobacco, dried cherry and spice flavors mingle in this red. Features a polished texture, with well-integrated tannins and orange peel acidity. Supple, harmonious and graceful. Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Drink now through 2025. 100,000 cases made, 9,067 cases imported." -TM, 9/30/19

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Soft, earthy berry and plum aromas are full and ripe but short on the complexity that this is capable of showing. A medium-full palate is in good shape, while dark plum, berry and raisin flavors are confirmed on a steady, ripe and fruit-driven finish. " -MS, 9/1/19
