Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

A blend of 80% Tempranillo, and the rest Grenache, Mazuelo and Graciano. Deep Ruby with ripe berry fruits, herbs and spice, aged for 3 years in oak and another 3 years in the bottle before release, Wow! On the palate ripe cherry, blackberries and ample dried fruits, well integrated oak and acidity with pepper, tobacco, toast oak and vanilla. Smooth with fine tannins and mineral notes, complex, long ending with earthy tones. Outstanding! Will continue to age.

Faint American oak tipped me off. Lots of Brett but still has balancing fruit. Gassy. Active in the bottle. Don’t store.

Ripe black cherry, plum, medium tannins, medium minus acid, tasty wine.

Good... lithe and light but concentrated and beautiful at the same time. But needs much more time... aromas all mixed up right now. Cherries and a big deep fruity perfume that’s yet to gain much intricacy. But this will wind up being very good.

This is a big wine that is standing up very well on the big stage. Among the best Gran Reserva from Spain. Pleased to have 22 bottles to lay down for a bit

Muga Prado Enea 2011 Vin très opaque, nez très expressif. Les arômes au nez sont très similaire aux arômes en bouche, fruits noirs, cerises, prunes, cèdre. Cependant on goute encore l’élevage, le bois n’est pas encore totalement digéré, mais si je me fie à d’autres millésimes dégustés, ca ne sera pas un probleme dans 5-7 ans. Belle acidité, belle structure overall, finale gouleyante.!! Bien hate de revoir dans 7 -10 ans

90 minute decant. Very deep ruby. Earth, soil, licorice, white pepper, most primary fruit has passed. Some subtle root vegetable, and ash. Super hot alcoholic burn. Full bodied. Medium acidity. Smooth yet firm tannins. Medium plus finish. Compared to the Crianza earlier, to me, this is only marginally better. I craved leather and tobacco, but couldn't find it. No meat or barnyard funk. Moreover, the alcohol.puts it a bit out of balance. In short, the nose on this wine is better, but the palate of the Pesquera wins. I'll give the nod + to the Prado Enea--past vintages have offered much more (leather, coffee, meat) 92+ points UPDATE: Listen, I can't do it. This wine is not better than the 2015 Alejandro Fernandez Tinto Pesquera Crianza. It's just not. I have both glasses in front of me. The former is hot and choppy, and latter is round and the secondary oak notes are balancing it perfectly. Lesson learned: this is an example of how you can easily waste 30+ dollars. Back down to 92 points. The other gets the bump to 92+. Thanks for listening!!! Maybe @Antonio Galloni can chime in on this one?!

Bit of a dud here. It surprisingly lacked the depth expected from these top cuvees from Muga. Nice to drink, and perhaps needs time, but I don’t see the need even after a decant.
