CATA's notes Muga Reserva Special Selection
We have a cherry red wine with a high robe and a very good density. On the nose you can find memories of ripe red fruits, spices (pepper) and undergrowth; In turn, the whole range of coffee aromas stand out: caramel of coffee with milk, roasted coffee and a well integrated wood. On the palate it is silky, with tannin present, denoting youth and good aging potential. With a tannic structure that makes it elegant and balanced.
