Muga Rioja Reserva 2008 Tempranillo


Muga Rioja Reserva Unfiltered 2008 Tempranillo, $17.84-$27.99, 92 points, had a cloudy almost Shiraz purple color with a thin clear rim.
The aroma abounded with earth, sweet red cherry, and a floral component all of which carried over to the palate on a medium-plus body of smooth acidity and grainy tannin that complimented this wine; the powerful floral aroma translated onto the palate, but was low-keyed enough to allow the cherry flavor enough room to balance the overall profile.
Finished silky with just enough spice, length, and a hint of licorice, to seal the deal on this very nice wine.

Chrismas with Andres Segovia!

  1. Love Rioja! If you see the Remelluri, don't hesitate to try it. It's about $30 but really good.

  2. John, I haven't seen the Remelluri in NH, but I'm already on the prowl:-)
