It has a very classical profile, with incipient tertiary notes, perfumed, floral and rich, textured and beautifully balanced. They compare this 2015 with 2009 and 2005 in terms of style but with freshness in the style of 2001 and 2010. It's enjoyable but should also develop for a long time in bottle.
The most classical of the wines from Muga, the 2011 Prado Enea Gran Reserva comes from a warm year that here was cooler than 2012, when they did not produce it. There won't be a 2013 either. So, after this 2011, the following vintage will be 2014 but with fewer bottles and then 2015 and 2016. The wine has a developed nose with some tertiary notes, combined with some notes of ripe black fruit and sweet spices. It feels like an open, expressive and hedonistic year for Prado Enea. The palate reveals polished tannins and some balsamic and developed flavours, truffle, forest floor and hints of cigar ash and incense.
The 2006 Prado Enea is a phenomenal bottle of traditional Rioja at its best. The grapes are sourced from higher-altitude terraced plots where the climate is cooler and drier, and the soils are rich in clay. This is a wine that is not automatically produced every year. The wine spends its elevate in oak containers of different size, origin, and age for no less than three years. The nose is intoxicating with a superb mixture of tertiary and more primary aromas like old furniture, cloves, cracked pepper, incense and cigar ash plus cherries in liqueur. The palate is medium-bodied, with great freshness, acidity, and balance, with a silky texture, ultra-fine tannins and great persistence and length.
