Jesus Madrazo 2018 Rioja Seleccion 750ml
The red blend 2018 Selección is an improvement over the already impressive 2017. It comes from the vineyards of Miguel Angel Muro (where Madrazo is an advisor) from a challenging year where he had to work hard to blend it and reduced the amount of Maturana and Graciano that did not deliver that year. It's powerful and ripe, close to 15% alcohol. The palate is medium to full-bodied, balanced, juicy and rich and has polished and fine tannins.
