The Dalmau Reserva from Murrieta is a modern variant of the Rioja premium wine, deep dark, extremely concentrated and powerful On the other hand, it follows the tradition after the phylloxera crisis of using Cabernet Sauvignon in Rioja. In this era (the beginning of the 20th century to the mid-1920s) legendary wines were created, the best of which are still a delight today. Although the use of Cabernet Sauvignon is not actually permitted in Rioja, an exception was permitted here because the Murrieta Cabernet vines are older than the Rioja production guidelines.

The 2016 Dalmau Reserva is a great wine with enormous density and the depth of old vines. Not only is it a powerhouse, it is also extremely multi-layered and aromatically complex. A modern Rioja monument with very great storage potential.
