In the warm 2006 vintage, Prado Enea benefited greatly from the high-altitude, terraced plots, from which these grapes are sourced. Here the climate is cooler and drier, which resulted in a long growing season and ideal ripeness. With each parcel aged according to its needs, Muga carefully selected barrels of varying sizes and origins. This attention to detail and a mix of experience, location and vintage, resulted in one of the greatest Prado Enea ever produced. ✦ Muga Prado e nea Gran Reserva Rioja 2006 JS 98 » $59 "This is amazing traditional Rioja with a complexity and beauty... It lasts for minutes on the palate." (1634075) For Tonigh T or The a ges c VNE is one of the biggest names in Rioja, with roots going back to 1879, and vintages from decades past that continue to thrill tasters. Yet these don't have to go into your cellar; the 2008 CVNE Vina Real Gran Reserva is the perfect candidate for both tonight and decades down the road. It is approachable in its youth for its dark fruits, spice and remnants of oak on the nose. On the palate, it truly comes to life with pulsating acidity contrasting youthful tannin resulting in a complex yet balanced wine with intense fruit. ✦ C v N e v ina Real Gran Reserva 2008 LG 94 » $39 "A great Gran Reserva that should please fans of both traditional and more modern wines..." (1633014)
