Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Elegant red color with violet hues which hint at a well preserved youthfulness. In the aroma there is a subtle mingling of fruit nuances of ripe red berries with hints of spices. This aroma is intense, clean and subtle. On the palate it has lots of flavor, with an elegant attack, evolving into a meaty mouth-feel. Its powerful, though modulated tannins carry the wine onwards into a long, promising finish. A complex, supple, enjoyable wine with excellent potency.
"Glass-staining purple. Jaw-droppingly perfumed bouquet of candied cherry, blackcurrant, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, minerals and Asian spices. There's a seductively mineral-driven quality to the vibrant fruit that reminded me of Chateau Ausone. Sweet cassis and blackberry flavors overwhelm the palate and pick up candied flowers, cinnamon and mocha with time in the glass. As lush and creamy as this wine is, there is excellent mineral spine to add focus to the endlessly sweet, spicy finish. If I could find or afford this, I'd be all over it. There were just 250 cases made of this wine, which is a selection from the property's oldest vines. "
International Wine Cellar
"The flagship 2005 Aro is composed of 70% Tempranillo and 30%
Graciano sourced from Muga’s best and oldest vineyards. It is then
aged for 18 months in new French oak. Purple/black in color, the wine’s
legs ooze slowly down the glass. Aromas of toasty new oak, mineral,
spice box, incense, and blackberry are followed by a muscular, backstrapping
infant of a wine with huge fruit, flavor, and structure. Deep,
layered, and nearly impenetrable, it will require a minimum of a decade
of cellaring. Do not think of touching a bottle before 2015 and then enjoy
it through 2030. It is a true vin de garde."
The Wine Advocate
"This muscular red leads with oaky notes of smoke, coffee and dark chocolate that frame a rich core of plum, tobacco and savory herbs. There's powerful tannins, but the finish is clean and fresh. Let this unwind. Best after 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 250 cases made."
The Muga wine cellars were founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez who originated from a family with strong ties to the winemaking industry. On the death of the founder in 1969, his children Manuel, Isabel and Isaac Muga Caño took over the reins.
Two years later in 1971, they moved their headquarters to their present location in the traditional Station District on the outskirts...Read More About Bodegas Muga
