    Region: Rioja, Spain

    Varietal: Tempranillo

    Other Info: Green Wines

    Style: Earthy & Spicy

    Item no. 94375

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 10% Mazuelo, and Graciano.

    This is the only winery left in Spain that uses only oak throughout the entire vinification process, which is very traditional and artisanal. They have their own cooperage and import the oak directly from the United States and France.

    Aged for 6 months in wooden vats, 2 years in new 60% French and 40% American oak barrels and at least 12 months in bottles.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Muga Reserva is dark ruby-colored with an enticing nose of pain grille, pencil lead, crushed stone, and blackberry. This leads to an elegant wine with layers of flavor, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish.

    #65 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

    Focused and balanced, this vivacious red delivers black cherry, mineral, mint and citrus peel flavors, with firm but well-integrated tannins and a fresh, floral finish. Drink now through 2012. 4,000 cases imported.

    Lovely smooth drinking wine. Slightly spicy but not overpowering. Enjoyed with spareribs.

    I love good Tempranillos/Riojas, and this is definitely there. It has a beautiful color and has a great aroma as you pour it from the bottle and swirl in the glass. The wine has a remarkably complex flavor component - nice, earthy, and spicy, with quite a good finish. I recommend it for the price.
