International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review
Saturated ruby color. Oak-spiced raspberry and boysenberry aromas are complemented by smoky minerals, pipe tobacco and incense. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, displaying impressively concentrated red and dark berry liqueur flavors and a late note of candied licorice. A strong cherry-vanilla quality lingers on the long, sappy finish. Extremely impressive Rioja, deftly balancing energy and power.
Wine Advocate (WA) Review
The 2004 Muga Reserva Seleccion Especial is deep crimson-colored. Dense and packed, it offers up aromas of cedar, spice box, mineral, pencil lead, and assorted black fruits. It nicely conceals enough structure for 6-8 years of evolution. This lengthy effort should drink well through 2030. -Jay Miller
Wine Spectactor (WS) Review
Ripe black fruit flavors mingle with espresso, anise and mint notes in this bold red. Firm tannins support a thick texture; there's plenty of oak and alcohol, but enough acidity for balance. Best from 2009 through 2020. 2,000 cases made. –TM
