Exceptional - Wonderful aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, leather and coffee, silky taste, excellent balance and long finish, in a broad-shouldered and imposing bottle. A little bit expensive!

Saturated ruby. Exotically perfumed, syrah-like bouquet of red and dark berries, violet, smoky bacon and graphite, with a vanillin oak spice undertone adding an exotic touch. Fleshy, palate-staining cassis and bitter cherry flavors are brightened by piquant minerality and firmed by fine-grained tannins. Cracked pepper and mace qualitites come up on the long, silky finish. Extremely suave and strikingly complex wine with excellent balance.

This vintage of Torre Muga leads with its dazzling complexity, then wallops you with richness. It's easy to get caught up in the whirl of spice rising from the glass, coriander, sandalwood, tobacco leaf, the milk chocolate hint of oak; it's an intellectual pleasure. Then from the first sip there's the sensual pleasure, too, of packed cherry and raspberry fruit, of the dense silky texture, and of those gripping tannins that pull the finish into line. Delicious as it is now, this deserves a decade in the cellar, when it will provide a layered accompaniment to herb-rubbed leg of lamb.

The new luxury Rioja, the 1995 Torre Muga Reserva Especial (75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo, and 10% Graciano), was kept 22 months in large American oak vats and then moved to 100% new French oak for 16 months. There are approximately 5,000 cases of this gorgeous Rioja, which has managed to endure significant oak aging, yet retain remarkable levels of fruit, complexity, and richness. The Lafite-Rothschild of Rioja, it offers elegant, spicy, cedary, black cherry, mineral, and toasty aromas. Medium to full-bodied, with harmony among its component parts, this is a wine of exceptional grace, richness, length, and overall symmetry. It can be drunk now, but promises to improve for 12ndash;20 years. Impressive!

A selection from Muga's oldest vineyards in Villalba, Torre Muga packs all the machismo of an alta expresión wine, chewy, dense and powerful. It lasts on tough, mineral-inflected tannin and generous black cherry flavor, the fruit component substantial enough to fill the structure completely. It's balanced in its power, juicy and firm, needing years to fully develop.

A dazzling effort from this traditionally run bodega, the 1994 Torre Muga is a terrific Rioja. A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 10% Grenache, this wine emerges from the estatersquo;s oldest vines, and is aged in small barriques. A breakthrough in what will undoubtedly be a bevy of cult Riojas, made from old vines, and aged in small casks, this is a full-bodied, superbly-concentrated, fragrant, multi-dimensional wine. The color is a deep, dark ruby with some lightening at the edge. The nose offers up sweet scents of black cherry liqueur, raspberries, licorice, smoke, lead pencil, and pain grilleacute;. In the mouth, there are lush layers of fruit that cascade over the palate, as well as full body and gobs of glycerin. This Rioja possesses gorgeous sweetness of fruit (from extract, not sugar), as well as impeccable purity and overall harmony. Anticipated maturity: nowndash;2015. This wine spent 22 months in American oak vats, followed by 16 months in 100% new Allier oak casks!

The 2004 Torre Muga is 75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo, and 10% Graciano. It is aged for 3 months in large wood vats before spending 18 months in new French oak. Inky purple-hued, it exhibits a superb nose of wood smoke, pencil lead, spice box, scorched earth, and blackberry. This leads to a layered, opulent wine with 5ndash;7 years of aging potential. It has great balance and should drink at its best from 2015 to 2025.

Winemaker's Notes:

Only the finest grapes produced by Bodegas Muga go into to this late release Tempranillo Grenache blend. Deep red brick in color almost brown this wine drinks like a Spanish Brunello revealing a delicious balance of earth and fruit. This wine sees one year in large oak vats three years in new Bordeaux barriques and a minimum of three years in bottle.
