External Reviews for Viña Magaña Merlot Blend Navarra
Aged in 100% new large French oak casks. Opaque ruby. Fragrant, complex bouquet of cherry-cola, incense, minerals and Asian spices. Initially dominated by its wood element, but powerful red and dark fruit preserve flavors come forward with air, along with notes of candied rose and star anise. The floral quality repeats on the sappy, impressively persistent finish. This bottling, which has only been made in 2007, 2005, 2001, 1990 and 1982, would do some damage in a tasting of high-end Bordeaux.
The 2007 Magana Merlot is 100% varietal, aged for 18 months in French oak. A glass coating opaque purple color, it surrenders a high-class nose of pain grille, pencil lead, cassis, black currant, and plenty of spice. Layered and succulent on the palate, it conceals enough ripe tannin to blossom for another 5ndash;7 years. It should perform optimally from 2015 to 2030.
