2011 Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva

 

$76.99

Winemaker Notes:

“The wine exhibits an attractive, deep, cherry color. The nose is fresh and complex expressing aromas of blackberry forest fruit and prunes, while notes of cocoa, vanilla and subtle toast also come through denoting an ageing in top quality oak. Fresh on the palate with very well-integrated acidity. A lovely, pleasant mouth-feel with a good lingering finish. Clean and fresh with great ageing potential. This wine pairs well with casseroles, meat dishes, fish and cheese; and it can even be enjoyed on its own, without any accompaniment.┬áBlend: 80% Tempranillo, 20% Grenache, Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano.”

Critical Acclaim:

99 points.
“The most structured Prado Enea ever. A reduced center palate that is so compact with dark fruit, dark mushrooms and cedary spice. Full body. Wonderfully polished tannins and a long, long finish. Electric acidity. Muscular and well toned. The is a new classic that reminds me of great Spanish wines from the 1940s and 1950s. Better after 2021, but already so impressive.” – James Suckling

“97 points.

“The latest in a string of brilliant Prado Eneas from Jorge Muga, this comes from the bodega’s coolest and highest vineyards, up to 600 metres in some cases, and will age every bit as well as its distinguished predecessors. Dense, dark and brooding, with chalky minerality and a finish that lingers on the tongue. 2021-35.” – Tim Atkin
