Wine Enthusiast 95 points - A fully ripe nose runs deep with balsamic black fruit aromas as well as complex notes of graphite and fine oak.

To speak about Dalmau is to speak about Canajas, a unique single vineyard within our 741-acre (300-hectare) Ygay Estate. The vines in that vineyard are more than 50 years old and are located at over 480 meters above sea level. Long maceration during fermentation, ageing in new French oak barrels and very limited production characterize the wine. This modern Rioja wine made from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano perfectly reflects the innovations taking place at Marques de Murrieta.
