Purplish-red with an even robe and barely translucent. On the nose it is a harvest which can easily be recognized for the significant difference in its fruit characteristics compared to previous vintages. More of the fruit with pips tan of fruit with stones, accompanied by perfectly ripe red berries. This is all underpinned by hints of mainly white flowers (this is not a normal characteristic of Muga crianza/reserva vines), and a very full spectrum of oaky spices without any one of them clearly dominating.

It has a good, very long finish. This is a wine packed with character and with an evolution which recalls the magnificent 2005 vintage.

Decant this if you open it now, to serve with roast pheasant or game birds.
