Ah, Rioja, one of the last wine areas I have travelled to, cannot wait to go back. This well known wine smells of a beautiful cedar forest. Light, red fruit leads on with silky medium body, those cedar tannins wrapping up the fruit in a nice, expressive package.

A little muted on the nose and weak on the palate, this isn’t the best iteration of this workhorse Reserva from Muga, of which there are some one million bottles. The oak is fairly poorly integrated at the moment. It does have a pleasing core of red fruit with some spice and good balance, but ultimately it fails to impress.

Spanish wines have got to be the best in terms of bang for your buck. Very easy drinking, smooth, a lot going on with this... #WoodyWoodpecker

Outstanding freshness in this vintage. Nice bit of meaty earth too with plenty of red fruit and berries plus a soft dose of new wood. Great right out the bottle, after 24 hours, and even after 48. Impressive.

Firstly, the conditions weren’t great for this wine. It was drunk without decanting at cellar temperature, so in many respects was unable to show at its best. I do believe this is a little closed down for now; there seems to be much more lurking beneath the surface that should be revealed with another 5 years or so. That being said, it missed the mark somewhat for me on this occasion and certainly didn’t match the 2014 I had a few weeks ago. I’ll sit on the remaining bottles I have.

Plum, currants, vanilla needs some time to settle

So good! Didn’t realize it was 375ml so spent double but it delivered. Even Jared noticed a difference! Had with pizza...cool summer night after Mt. Missouri. Hit the spot.
