This Reserva displays an attractive, medium-deep, ruby-red colour with some brick-red glints. The nose reveals delicious red and black fruit aromas, such as blueberries, plums and forest fruit, together with notes of liquorice and chocolate. Medium-bodied on the palate, the wine shows lovely balance with hints of roasted coffee beans, ripe fruit, silky tannins and a lingering finish. This Crianza can be enjoyed now, but it also has enough structure to be cellared for several years. This wine will go wonderfully with meat dishes, such as veal, as well as Iberico charcuterie and casseroles.

Vivid red. Energetic red fruit, floral and spice scents take on a minerally aspect with air. Silky, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that show good depth and a surprisingly airy touch. Deftly blends power and finesse and finishes very long and smooth, with subtle tannic grip and repeating red fruit and floral notes. This is the only red wine that the Muga family made in 2017, such was the crop loss, which means that fruit that would normally have gone into their high-end bottlings wound up here.
