Bodegas Muga

Rioja Barrel Fermented Viura Blend 2015

I typically enjoy white Rioja and this is no exception. Deep golden color, subtle but apparent oak usage - very tactful. Bruised orchard fruit, dry hay, ripe citrus, and a green celery type thing. Heavy and oxidative, without going overboard with either element. Went surprisingly well with seafood gumbo, which I had no idea what to pair with. — 20 hours ago

LA BASTID Viura Blend 2016

Serious and seriously exceptional from a French master making Burgundy style Rioja. It’s more Burgundy though - expertly integrated oak (French) and acid - equally intense and graceful. Pale and powerful tutorial in balance. — 4 days ago

Very similar to the La Rioja Alta but, more fruit forward.

Excellent follow up to the 04 with our Tri-tip.

Photos of; my visit, their tasting room & lounge, Bodega Marquises, De Murrieta and their view from the Bodega terrace.

Palacios Remondo

La Montesa Alfaro Rioja Baja Tempranillo Blend

Mainly garnacha (92%) this wine has a vibrant red fruit core with crisp acidity and minimal oak on the nose and palate. It’s overflowing with red cherry, dried orange peel, and brush herbs reminiscent of rosemary and thyme with a hint of leather and tar on the long finish. It’s wonderfully easy drinking and the pedigree is impeccable - it’s made by Priorat-wizard Alvaro Palacios from his family’s Vineyards in Rioja Baja. Organic, minimal sulfur use. 14% abv — 12 days ago

Wow! Velvet, dark currants, mocha, caramel, dark chocolate, saddle-wood, underbrush, gravel, stones & elegance that only happens with this much time forward. Round acidity and beautiful balance and finish.

Stupidly good with our Tri-tip!!!

Photos of; my visits to Bodega La Rioja, their well backlit tasting bar, outside patio and large oak barrels that were assembled inside the Bodega more than 100 years ago...they’re that big and have required many repairs over the years.
