Litt søt, hvis jeg skal pirke. Helt fantastisk! Drakk den uten mat, men passer nok godt til en biff..

Just about right to celebrate Irma sparing us of her worst. @PR

Having the bottle in a Spanish restaurant in Shanghai. Full body, cherry, dry. Love it.

2011 is big & generous. This certainly shows a firm tannic grip, but has some powerful dark fruit to balance things in youth. As always, lovely spicy accents adding complexity. A delightful young Muga.

Ruby with slightly darker edges and aromas of red and black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate plum, ripe blackberry and cherry flavors, more expressive than 2010. This wine has a blend of 20% Garnacha, 70% Tempranillo and small amounts of Mazuelo and Graciano. Bright acidity with firm tannins show up on the finish. Nice mouth-feel on a long ending. Nice value!

Dirty Spaniard (but in a good way)

Some strawberries, oak and earthy aromas. Medium body and high acidity. Long lingering sour cherries.
