    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is clean and bright, predominantly red with violet hues reflecting its excellent acidity. The first impression on the palate is of slight sharpness giving it freshness, the first sign of a wine which will give us a lot of sensations during its long life. As the wine moves through your mouth hints of dried fruits and spices appear and these are complemented in the aftertaste by balsamic nuances. We are faced with one of those rare exceptions in which the ripe fruit is better expressed in the retronasal phase than directly on the nose. We can find prunes, red berries, a bit of stewed apple and mulled wine. In the gradual fading of the sensations in both the retronasal phase and the aftertaste there remains a faint reminder of the fine spices from the oak.

    Blend: 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo, 3% Graciano

    Critical Acclaim:

    Vivid ruby. Heady, exotic aromas of candied dark berries, vanilla, cola and dark chocolate, with a slow-building floral quality. The palate offers sweet cherry-vanilla and licorice flavors, along with notes of rose pastille and bitter chocolate. Finishes sweet and long, with silky tannins adding shape and gentle grip. This is the only red wine that Muga bottled this vintage so all of the Prado Enea fruit went in here.

    Textbook Reserva. Mocha and coffee beans on the nose. Concentrated stewed fruit with delicate spices. Savoury, juicy, developed, and round with a long finish. Drink 2013–2025
