Bodegas Muga Reserva 2006

 Bodegas Muga Reserva 2006

It’s a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, with Mazuelo and Gracian bringing up the rear. When the wine opens it really starts hitting its straps with a mix of smoked meats, earth, black cherry and a spring bouquet of flowers. The tannin structure is what really brings up the enjoyment factor for me with a chalky coating running across most taste buds. There are layers of complexity that unfold through out the journey but I would leave it alone for 3 to 5 years and enjoy the ride even more.
