    Winemaker Notes
    This vintage has rather fresher fruit and floral notes which are present in all the phases of the tasting, but without becoming dominant at any time. You can find fresh, jammy cherry, red-berry fruit compote, a touch of liquorice and aniseed, and hints of fennel and white blossom. The rich spectrum of aromas is so great that it barely leaves room for the hints of oaky spices to make an appearance. These are hard to pin down, but we think you can find traces of caramel, vanilla and coconut…Smooth mouth-feel with a predominance of sweet, well-rounded tannins, quite a surprise when you remember the age of the wine. A presence of natural acidity which has become blurred and in no way intrudes.There is less fruit and more spiciness in the retro nasal tasting, with cherries but also vanilla, wild shrubs, black pepper and a little leather. The floral nuances disappear in this phase.The aftertaste is long and silky, with a curious mixture of the sweet shop and mineral sensations coming through.

    The name Muga resonates with wine lovers all around the globe, the winery has an outstanding track record of success over the last two decades or so. The 2011 Reserva is one of the best red wines in the world; shows so much elegance and richness. Medium ruby color, very appealing aroma, red and some black fruits, fine depth and style; medium bodied, textured on the palate; red fruit, dried leaves; long finish, firms up well in the aftertaste. (Tasted: November 6, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

    It is a Rioja that mixes the traditional and modern character with ripe fruit and contains oak aromas that are quite spicy and have some toast and smoke that should integrate with a bit of time in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied, has clean flavors that are balanced with sweet tannins. This is easy to drink, pleasant but not banal, and delivers a lot for its price. An impressive half-million bottles are produced of this wine, which is sold as Crianza in Spain and as Reserva in the rest of the world. Year after year, one of the most reliable and affordable Reservas. Rating 91+

    Savory, almost mulled plum and berry aromas introduce a flush, dense, slightly syrupy palate with hefty, ripe flavors of fig, black plum, spice and chocolate. Ripe black-fruit notes carry the finish on this Riserva. Interestingly, this includes 20% Garnacha along with 70% Tempranillo and small amounts of Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink through 2020.

    Smoky, tarry notes frame plum, loamy earth and mineral flavors in this savory red. Tart acidity enlivens the plush texture, while firm tannins keep this focused.
