    June 12, 2022 - Generous oak, but very tastefully done. Lusty fruit, juicy, perfect ripeness, succulent acidity. Most enjoyable wine. Showing youth and vigor, and a long life is likely.

    April 27, 2022 - [Magnum]. Christ alive. The greatest vintage of the 21st Century so far in Rioja. Vanilla, leather, ribeye steak (all that juicy beefy fat mmmmmmm), moist pipe tobacco, carob... Exquisitely nuanced and seductive. Silky and velvety - two textural characteristics that rarely go together. Caresses you like the lover you always dreamed of. Simply sublime. Tears in my eyes. Unforgettably romantic and bafflingly profound. A true, true colossus. If you do not experience emotion with this you are not human. [Thoughts the day after: I didn't see this coming - I thought this Prado Enea had peaked a few years ago - how happily wrong I was!]

    April 10, 2022 - Absolutely singing tonight, intoxicating nose of Cedar mixed with vanilla,macerated fruit ,forest floor and allspice.
    Medium weight on the palate the wine is packed with flavors of oak, leather, red berries and cherries in liqueur, slight hint of VA still and the acid streak just carries the wine into a lovely finish that just lingers on....amazing quality for the price.
    I opened the Bottle in the morning ( 9:00AM) just with the cork out until (5:00PM), gave it 30 minutes in the decanter and back in the bottle before heading to the restaurant.
    I am in no rush to open the next 4, sitting comfortably in the middle of it's long drinking window. Will drink nicely until 2032 without a problem...perhaps even beyond.

    March 12, 2022 - Maybe my bottle is a dud I am not sure but it lacked fruit components, seemed dry. The nose was very attractive but on the palate the wine did not impress. Will see with the rest of the pack maybe the others will be better.

    (Bodega Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva) #2; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-earthy component on the attack; a lot of raspberry; an old world style, but not to funky; a little floral components as well; PALATE-the rose petal floral action follows through on the palate; kind of grainy; an earthy tone; some good acidity; good tannins; this is 10 years old, but extremely fresh; good long finish; a little copper component; this is solid, but not cheap at $55 bones; JR-93; GV-90
