Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Muga Muga Reserva Tempranillo Garnacha Mazuelo Graciano 2005 Wine Review
Vintages Wine Panel: Rioja is the most famous of all Spanish regions. Its wines, made principally with the indigenous Tempranillo grape, are extensively aged in oak barrels (often American) which impart a characteristically smooth spicy-oak quality to the wines. Muga’s Reserva is a seductive wine with supple and dense fruit flavors as well as notes of cedar, spice, vanilla and coconut. My note: A rich, luxurious red with layers of black fruit flavor. Full-bodied with notes of mocha, black plums, smoke, vanilla, dark spices and tobacco. A long, satisfying finish. This one will get you out of the Cabernet rut. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. 4.5/5 Tempranillo Garnacha Mazuelo Graciano food pairings: meat paella, hearty and spicy beef, game stews.

|Vera Czerny rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
As always, this wine is very elegant - dark purple to ruby color and lovely notes of dark fruit and oak on the nose. On the palate it is a sexy, medium weight dark berries wine with smokiness of wood, tobacco, spices and enough soft tannins and acidity to keep for quite a few years. Complex and beautifully balanced. Muga Reserva is definitely drinkable right now, but it will improve with a fews years of cellaring. Consistently world - class wine from Rioja for insane low price. Wines from Muga family never disappointed me. Ever.
