Great surprise! Brilliant QPR at £8/half. Youthful, vivacious, promising for the future. An excellent Rioja.

Founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez. On his death in ‘69, children Manuel, Isabel & Isaac Muga Caño took over. Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice, unmistakable Muga. 4 grape blend from the Haro district (Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano), palate shows cherry and currant flavors with espresso and smoky oak tones. Soft tannins with an edge, lively acidity on a medium+ finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Nice!

Was actually at the Stadsbrasserie in Rotterdam not the train station. Catching up on summer sips. Memory a little foggy.

Deep ruby.
Pronounced youthful nose of blackberry, pepper, dark cherry, plum, tobacco, cocoa, spices, floral scents.
The palate is dry, med+ acid, med+ fine grained tannins, high alcohol, full body, pronounced intensity.
Med+ spicy finish.
Very good wine, nice and balanced, can drink now, suitable for further aging.

Rich black soil, leather, tobacco, dusty espresso, sweet ass. Fairly extracted, a big presence.

Tempranillo grapes. Medium-Light. awesome :)
Crizal - Entry level
Reserva - mid (May not be too different from Crizal taste-wise)
Grand Reserva - best
