Muga Prado Enea G Reserve 1998

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.

Must have for Rioja lovers. Medium to full bodied with classic tempranillo notes of leather and coffee to balance the fruit and spice.

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.

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.

Beautifully aromatic, with notes of cassis, lilacs, coffee and spices, this sinuous Spanish red is polished and elegant, yet dense with fruit, oak and earthy flavors that linger and expand on the long finish. An extraordinary marriage of typicity and sophistication. Drink now through 2010.

This red marries elegance and concentration, with ripe plum and blackberry flavors, toasty, cola-scented oak notes and lovely spice accents. A bit tightly wound now, it should be gorgeous with a bit of age. Best from 1999 through 2010.

Plush and harmonious, this red is alluring yet subtle, with intense flavors backed by an impressive structure. Look for black currant, cocoa, cigar box and mineral notes now, and expect further complexity as this evolves. Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink now through 2020.
