Muga "Seleccion Especial" Rioja 2001

Saturated, deep red.

Opened yesterday. Deep smoke, grilled meat, citrus, ripe tomato nose with a suggestion of BBQ sauce.

Linear, with intense citrus and earth flavors. Strong acid/tannin synergy shuts down the finish. Much less expressive than my last bottle several months ago.
