Natalie's Score: 90/100
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.
Tempranillo Garnacha Mazuelo Graciano food pairings: meat paella, hearty and spicy beef, game stews.

Reviews and Ratings
|Vera Czerny rated this wine as 93/100 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.
