    March 11, 2017 - Good effort. Sweetish red fruits, soft tannins and well integrated oak. Decent finish. V. good QPR

    January 19, 2017 - Lacking perfume upon opening. The very beginnings of corked in this first bottle? But excellent body, texture, and grip. Looking forward to trying another. Good value I suspect.

    October 17, 2016 - Did not decant. Served with grilled prime NY strip steak. Have been enjoying the Muga Reservas since 2006 and this is a very good example of excellent, somewhat fruit forward and modern Rioja. Plums, spices, and touch of wood in the nose and initial flavors, moderate soft tannins, and good length in this bottling. Look forward to drinking this wine over the next several years.
