Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Jan 2021: [70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo, 3% Graciano] Energetic red fruit, floral and spice scents take on a minerally aspect with air. Silky, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that show good depth and a surprisingly airy touch. Deftly blends power and finesse and finishes very long and smooth, with subtle tannic grip and repeating red fruit and floral notes. Drink: 2022 – 2030. 92 points.

Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Oct 2020: The red 2017 Reserva is their most popular wine... As is the norm here, it fermented in oak vats and matured in barrels, in this case for 24 months, crafted by their own coopers. The wine is fined with egg whites and kept in bottle for a further 12 months before it's released. I had the wine in the glass for a very long time, and it didn't stop improving; This is the only red they produced this vintage, so all the best grapes that normally go to other wines were used here,... seeming to have boosted the quality, which feels every bit as good as the 2016. It has a serious palate with fine, chalky tannins and very good balance...textbook Muga red: elegant and balanced, approach now and with potential to age. Drink: 2021-2027. 93 points.
