    This is an impressive wine. It is to be expected, Muga makes great wines. The 2015 Seleccion Especial definitely lives up to its Especial title. This is Rioja, unmistakably, but the accent has a strong French influence that softens the traditional Castillian. This is Rioja that framed with French oak. It helps soften and well and intensify Tempranillo. That is a round about way of saying, this is Rioja for anyone who love Cabernet. This is a dark, rich, concentrated wine. It is also aromatic, expressive, complex and wonderfully balanced. The fruit is about the beautiful dark berries and fruits that Tempranillo and Graciano bring to the party. There are sizable tannins but the oak polishes them and keeps them in check. Behind the fruit there are faint herbs, spice and a dusty mineral thing. Most importantly, now that we are at the end, this wine sings! It vibrates on the palate and just goes and goes and goes. This great tonight, it will need some time to open up but it will age nicely for a long time.

    A lot has changed since I last wrote a wine review, but thankfully upon coming back it seem Muga is still fire and The "Especial" bottling is still delicious enough to earn that designation. With about an hour of air this wine, while young, was fresh and flavorful and powerful, with the classic dusty garrigue and blackberry/blueberry crushed notes that often mark great Rioja. Open now or age, just make sure to drink.
