#65 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 10% Mazuelo, and Graciano
This is the only winery left in Spain that uses only oak throughout the entire vinification process, which is very traditional and artisanal. They have their own cooperage and import the oak directly from the United States and France.
Aged for 6 months in wooden vats, 2 years in new 60% French and 40% American oak barrels and at least 12 months in bottles.
"The 2004 Muga Reserva is dark ruby-colored with an enticing nose of pain grille, pencil lead, crushed stone, and blackberry. This leads to an elegant wine with layers of flavor, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish."
