Why Buy Me
Bodegas Muga vineyards are located in the Rioja Alta region. They have 620 hectares of vineyards. They are the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.
Initially you can find notes of red fruit aromas such as blackberries and reminders of spices. This is all well balanced by smoked aromas from its time in wood which had received a light-to-medium toasting. A subtle vanilla pod aroma coming through with roast coffee nuances.
A smooth, mellow attack, with tannins wrapping the sides of the mouth with hints of menthol. In the finish the interesting lingering persistence is worthy of note.
