Cedar, cherry, spice. Mature Rioja at its best. Develops on the palate and has great length. Glad I kept it for so long.

Founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez, now run by Manuel, Isabel & Isaac Muga Caño. Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice, unmistakable Muga. 4 grape blend from the Haro district (70% Tempranillo, rest Garnacha, Mazuelo & Graciano), palate shows cherry and currant flavors with espresso, vanilla & toasty oak tones. Soft full tannins, lively acidity on a medium+ finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Nice value! Great vintage! Went great with a gourmet pizza!

Really grew to like this. Began with a cavalcade of coffee, cedar and vanilla before settling to show ripe blackberry, salted plums, cherry and cola lollies. Impressively structured with medium plus tannin profile that slowly builds with balanced acidity.
