"The Mugas source this exceptional, ageworthy red from vineyards in Haro and the Sierra Cantabria, marrying Tempranillo with 25% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Dark, scented and plush, it has notes of liquorice and black olive, sweet blackberry fruit, floral top notes and aromatic 40% new wood underpinned by acidity. 2022-35"
"The 2015 Selección Especial checks in as 70% Tempranillo and the balance Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano that's an old vine and terroir selection. Aged 6 months in new oak followed by 24 months in 90% French oak and 10% American oak, it has a beautiful bouquet of blueberries, black raspberries, crushed violets, incense, and cedar. This gives way to a full-bodied, rich, powerful wine that has an incredible sense of elegance and finesse on the palate. It's a brilliant Rioja that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years or more."
