About professional Ratings
Bodegas Muga is a family firm founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño. The first wines were made in an underground cellar, until in 1968 they decided to set up their own winery in a beautiful old 19th-century town-house situated in the city of Haro. The Bodegas Muga outstanding feature is that it always uses the finest materials, combining tradition with the latest advances in winemaking so as always to give its wines the very best quality without losing authenticity.
Winemaker Notes... This 2017 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.
94 Points James Suckling... Lovely, succulent red with juicy berries and plums, together with some chocolate, spice, walnut and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins and a flavourful finish. Touch of dried fruit in the centre palate. A pretty combination of savoury and fresh-fruit character. Some orange peel as well. A baby Prado Enea.
