Muga Rioja Reserva 2007 Tempranillo, $21.24-$27.99, 90 points, poured a clearer, than previously tasted Muga Rioja wines, deep ruby trending orange/red, almost copper-color, toward the leggy glass wall and transparent wine ring.
Smells were not as pleasant as the others tasted; where early smells of earth and mushrooms, with some breathing, transitioned to a more fruity red cherry and strawberry.
Medium-bodied, good acidity, and mildly concluded tannins carried a rather smooth Tempranillo.
Flavors reflective of the nose with hints of sweet tobacco and mint were very good.
Finished well on a balanced 13.5% alcohol, easy spice notes, and trailing mint.
