Winemaker Notes

A very deep, black-cherry color with purplish undertones. The core is so deep it is almost opaque. A very youthful color, hardly developed at all for its age. Great concentration and depth on the nose with a complex array of aromatics that have developed

with the wine’s ageing in bottle, and which will be enhanced even more by longer ageing. Fruit sensations come to the fore, particularly red berry fruit and perfectly ripe forest fruit, such as blackberries, redcurrants and wild strawberries, together with floral notes (violet petals) and minerals (graphite and iron filings). Some spicy touches brought by the ageing process, such as cinnamon and black pepper, also come through. Well integrated oak demonstrates the high quality of the oak selected. Powerfully structured on the palate with good body and firm, high-quality tannins of great elegance combine with wonderful acidity. A sensation of

seamless solidity, without any aggressiveness whatsoever. Robust with great balance leading to a sensation of lovely freshness. Flavorsome and full, with layers of complex fruit flavor, minerality and spices. The aromas revealed on the nose return on

the palate but with more definition and precision. A long, full and elegant finish.

Blend: 70% Tempranillo, 30% Graciano

About Bodegas Muga

Bodegas Muga is a family business founded by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño in 1932, which is located in the historic Barrio de La Estación (Station Quarter) of Haro. With an area of around 25,000 square metres, it is home to both the most traditional winemaking methods and the latest cutting-edge techniques.

Wines that are born from inspiration and authenticity.

In Muga, we always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity.

To produce each of our wines, we continue opting for traditional procedures:

Through the natural process of fining, we eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine.

We carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity.
We are the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.
