Muga Rioja Rosado 2009
88 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Muga Rose is a mix of red and white grapes, 60% Garnacha, 30% Viura, and 10% Tempranillo which spends 2 months in American oak vats. Medium pink-colored with a pretty nose of strawberry and rhubarb, on the palate it is dry, crisp, and tasty in a slightly austere style which more sophisticated imbibers may find appealing. Drink it over the next 12-18 months. (Apr 2010)
