Product Overview

The 2015 Muga Reserva is ruby-red with glints of brick-red and a medium-high depth of color. Initial notes of red fruit aromas such as blackberries and reminders of spices are all well balanced by smoked aromas from its time in wood. A subtle vanilla pod aroma comes through as well, with roast coffee nuances. The palate begins with a smooth, mellow attack, with firms tannins and hints of menthol. In the finish, the interesting lingering persistence is worthy of note. Pair this wine with veal, Iberian ham and charcuterie, and various stews.

Varietal Composition: 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 10% (Mazuelo/Carignan, Graciano)
Appellation: Rioja DOC
Aging: 24 months in light-medium toasted oak casks, followed by a minimum of 12 months in bottle prior to release

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Reserva had just been bottled, and it should be released around January 2019 in the international market and in Spain (as Crianza) in October 2018. This was a very long harvest (similar to 2016). They started at the end of August with the Cava, and they finished at the end of October with very healthy grapes, good yields and very good quality. The wine shows very good ripeness but without any excess. It has incipient complexity, still young and undeveloped but with very good balance between power and elegance, with fine-grained tannins and integrated acidity. This has to be one of the best recent vintages of this popular bottling. There are around one million bottles of it." -LG, 2/28/18
