(89?) - Muga Reserva seems like a safe-bet-Rioja. The first one I've ever tried was from 1991.
5/2010: Medium to full body typical Rioja style. on the palate, blackberries, red currant and hints of cedar. With noticable tannins and earthy flavors.
I believe it can sit for a couple of years more or if you're impatient (like me), decant it for 30-45 min.
Went extremely well with pork tenderloin mixed with yellow and red pepper in a Thai spicy sauce.
This was really nice once it opened up.
On the nose: Floral (lavender/rose?), slightly astringent, quite perfumey.
Full bodied, fairly straight forward with plenty of fruit, a bit of high-toned lemon/citrus tang, even a touch of bubblegum! Quite a bit of drying wood and tannin, but all in relative balance. A bit on the rustic side right now but I think this has enough guts to lay down for a while. It will mellow with a few more years in the cellar.
A good wine but a tad overpriced I'd say. This really should be more like $18-$20.
