91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(70% tempranillo and 20% garnacha, with mazuelo and graciano):  Deep ruby.  Powerful cherry and blackberry on the nose, with alluring smoked meat and licorice notes and a suggestion of candied rose.  Full, fleshy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by a gentle mineral note and nicely supported by silky tannins.  Gains sweetness on the persistent finish, which features an exotic note of resiny, cured tobacco.  This is the only wine that Muga commercialized from the 2007 vintage.  (JR)
