Bodegas Muga Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. The grapes destined for Muga's exclusive Prado Enea are always the last to enter the winery, which means they are only picked after reaching an optimum maturity and ripeness. Fermentation is traditional with maceration lasting as long as 30 days in order to absorb all of the flavor and nuance from the grape skins and solids. Aged for 12 months in large wood barrels and a further 36 months in barrique. A beautiful and very complex Spanish red that wonderfully combines the old world and new world styles of winemaking.

This offer up a very stinky, very Burgundian nose with a core of leather and spice notes gently backed with vanilla tones. High toned and with great intensity this adds expansive notes of reduced red berries. Opulent and layered in the mouth with black cherry fruit of almost syrupy quality. Lots of very fine tannins add support to the fruit and the superbly integrated acidity keeps everything fresh. This is very youthful and absolutely delicious. 2008-2016
