Not bad. Not the super old world rioja that I like, but well integrated tannin and acid. Good structure and length. Pencil, black pepper, baking spices.

Delicious! Smooth by still enough acid to stand up to food. Black fruits, tobacco, savory? Perfect wine for chicken paprikas.

Earthy, dark cherries & a hint of eucalyptus. Not hugely interesting but nicely balanced.

Founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez. On his death in 1969, his children Manuel, Isabel and Isaac Muga Caño took over the reins. Deep Ruby with aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice. This 4 grape blend from the Haro district (Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano), shows juicy cherry and currant flavors with espresso and smoky oak tones. Soft tannins, lively acidity on s medium finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Has room to age.

Cherries and pepper on the nose, and on first taste. Wild oak and chocolate comes in at middle just behind sour cherry and plums, then lingers through finish. Tannins pretty nicely it. Acidity slightly harsh.r
