Tame, elegant, balanced, delicious. Alluring nose of deep rich cherry-berry fruit, and interesting mineral. Gentle on the attack, in the mouth consistent layers of rich ripe fruit and mineral from start to finish. Medium body, medium acid, medium pleasant and gripping tannins. Like a Bordeaux Premier Cru Classe, but ready to drink. Phenomenal.

Smooth, silky, and a bit light bodied. Sweet nose of candied red and black berry, floral hints, sweet earth or compost. Round, mild, smooth, clean blackberry, some cherry, strawberry, leather, and nut oil. Finish of vanilla and hint of leather.

Vegetable/pepper nose, moderate tannins, slightly thin palate, long finish that's a little bitter but good.

I love me my Muga. Gorgeous wine with solid structure, deep purple color, nice tannins, evokes black cherries and subtle leather and tar on the palate. Nice finish. To me, this is the ultimate expression of Tempranillo. Simply delicioso! 13.5% alcohol.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The purple-colored 2005 Muga Reserva, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, and the balance Mazuelo and Graciano. It was aged for six months in wood vats followed by two years in new French and American oak. It delivers an alluring nose of cedar, tobacco, earth notes, mineral, and black cherry. This is followed by an elegant wine with good depth and enough ripe tannin to evolve for several years. Nicely balanced and long in the finish, it will be at its best from 2012 to 2020 if not longer.`

Darker than most Tempranillos, this one is deep purple with strong legs. Shitake mushroom, minerals, loomy and silky smooth with subtle, supple, hints of leather.

Rich aromas and flavors of blackcurrant and cherry. A top-value reserve bottling, unfiltered and exhibiting a smoky, spicy edge.

92 points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:"Bright ruby. Vibrant, seductive perfume of black raspberry, powdered rose, anise and minerals. Weighty but lively cherry and dark berry flavors are brightened by zesty minerals, picking up a candied licorice quality with aeration. The finish repeats the deep dark berry note and leaves exotic flowers and minerals behind. Very elegant wine that suavely blends richness and finesse." (Sept/Oct '09)

Made from the local varieties of Tempranillo, Graciano, and Mazuelo, the Torremuga is one of Muga's most powerful reds. This wine shows elegance and finesse, with notes of roasted coffee bean, dark chocolate, and dried fruit. Muga remains one of the oldest family run estates in Rioja.
