"Readers should be purchasing the 2001 Muga Reserva by the case. It is a stunning, unfiltered Rioja made from 70% Tempranillo, 20% Grenache, and the rest Mazuelo and Graciano. A big, rich bouquet of raspberries, cherries, graphite, and tobacco leaves is accompanied by abundant fruit, an expansive, medium to full-bodied palate, elegant, lush flavors, sweet tannin, and hints of cedar and white chocolate. This beautiful Rioja should drink well for a decade."
Tempranillo 70%, Garnacha 20%, Mazuelo y Graciano 10%
Cherry-red in color with light brick red hues from the ageing. Bright and attractive. The aromas of the wine are distinct and elegant. The aromas of noble wood are perfectly blended with those of ripe fruit.
