"This traditionally run Bodega estate-bottles all of its wines. The 1989 Castillo y Gay Grand Reserva Especial, which represents 25% of the estate's production, and is produced only in top vintages, is the flagship wine of Marques de Murrieta. The deep ruby/purple-colored 1989 offers up smoky, sweet, jammy black cherry fruit aromas intertwined with scents of minerals, tobacco, and vanillin. Medium-bodied and ripe, with outstanding levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract . . ." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate #116, Apr 1998
