Bodegas Muga Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): ...a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, with the balance Mazuelo and Graciano. It was aged for 6 months in wooden vats before spending 2 years in 60% new French and American oak. Purple-colored with an already complex bouquet of pain grille, mineral, violets, black cherry, and blackberry, on the palate it is smooth-textured, layered, and concentrated. It conceals enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years and will offer optimal drinking from 2012 to 2026. It is an excellent value in serious Rioja. (Apr 2010)

Rich aromas and flavors of blackcurrant and cherry. A top-value reserve bottling, unfiltered and exhibiting a smoky, spicy edge.
