Prado Enea comes from 80% Tempranillo a with the remainder split evenly between Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. This wine spends a year in oak vats, then is transferred into smaller new French Oak barrels for three years, followed by another three years in bottle before release. This wine is mature and classic with notes of cedar, lead pencil and blueberries eminating from the glass. This is Muga's old-world beauty, and should not be missed if you are a Rioja lover.

The Wine Advocate -95 Points Prado Enea Gran Reserva spends 36-months in oak, nine months in new oak after which it is racked into American oak that is "semi-new" (i.e. a new barrel that is "broken in" with a wine beforehand). It has an unashamedly opulent bouquet of primal, ripe, boysenberry, mulberry, dark chocolate and crushed violets that blossom with aeration. The palate is full-bodied with crisp acidity cutting through the pure blackberry and cassis fruit. It has wonderful focus and intensity, though the finish demonstrates convincing composure. This is an outstanding Gran Reserva whose silky texture will instantly win you over. Drink 2013-2030+"
