Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva Selección Especial 2016
The 2016 vintage, officially ranked as "Very Good", produced wines showing great balance between freshness and power and revealing expressive aromas, very ripe tannins, depth and length of flavour. This Special Selection Reserva 2016 exhibits a medium-deep, dense garnet/black cherry colour. The nose is complex with ripe, red berry and black fruit coming to the fore with hints of black pepper and subtle, creamy, smoky oak, followed by notes of coffee and a touch of mint. The entry on the palate is smooth and elegant and develops with good volume towards an elegant, harmonious mid-palate revealing fresh, ripe red berry fruits and spice. The whole is underpinned by a powerful tannic structure and fresh acidity. This powerful yet elegant Reserva offers great ageing potential.
A bold red with a toasty undertone to the red plum and cherry fruit notes accented with anise, wild herb and cola. Engaging and complex. Drink now through 2030. 18,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported.
