    91 Points, The Wine Advocate: "Muga’s red wines begin with the 2006 Muga Reserva, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, with the balance Mazuelo and Graciano. It was aged for 6 months in wooden vats before spending 2 years in 60% new French and American oak. Purple-colored with an already complex bouquet of pain grille, mineral, violets, black cherry, and blackberry, on the palate it is smooth-textured, layered, and concentrated. It conceals enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years and will offer optimal drinking from 2012 to 2026. It is an excellent value in serious Rioja."

    Dark ruby/purple colors. This is primarily tempranillo with grenache and other minor grapes. Nose of cherries, strawberries, barnyard, meat drippings. Flavors of the same with a medium savory finish. Minerals and brininess. Needs food and decanting. Red meats or medium bodied stews. Medium alcohol (14%).
