Bodegas Muga

Prado Enea Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo

After another day shopping with Mrs E we were not only worn out but broke so to McDonalds we went & I grabbed the new €44 Pardo Enea to pair with the burger 🍔 & enjoy in our hotel room at 11pm - dinner with style 🤣 better than the thick shake 😊

📍 Muga Pardo Enea 2010 (not decanted - wish I’d brought my 😉😉 vSpin)

🏵 93-94 points w/ great potential aged & decanted 😉

🍷 Deep opaque ruby

👃 Chocolate dark cherry cake w/ cracked rock mineral through red & purple flowers bathed in thick balsamic sauce & a hint of earthy herbs (not the pickle in the Big Mac 🤣)

👄 Med+ creamy body of balsamic infused mocha dark cherry gooeyness w/ a mineral dry tone

🎯 Med+ touch dry dark cherry balsamic mocha choc fest

⚠️ Can’t sleep after eating late? Just enjoy the wine with a view 😁 I left some for day 2 & it really opened up lovely 😉

El Valor Y La Gracia

Primera Corrida de Toros de la Temporada Castilla La Mancha Tempranillo

Deep youthful ruby color, clear and bright, intense and clean aromas of cherries and cassis and blackberries fill the glass. Juicy seductive attack fills your mouth with tart and smooth flavors of black cherries and licorice. It is a very good, excellently priced example of the #Tempranillo grape from #Spain — 7 days ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2010

Estoy enamorado! I’m in Love! The Fruit jumps out of the bottle on the nose reminding me of a Strawberry Jolly Rancher. This wine takes the best of the best. It’s got a body like a French Pinot, the fruit forwardness of a Merlot, and grabs the Oak like a Cabernet and It finishes like a Beaujolais. Red Cherry, Strawberry and Oak run neck and neck from the start to the checkered flag! And for less than $23. What!?! A Winner! — 4 days ago
