Dark, almost black, in color with streaks of midnight blue. Notes of black cherry, dark bitter chocolate and freshly ground coffee with a slight veil of vanilla that appears right at the end bouquet, is intoxicating. Viscous and dense in the mouth, with firm tannins, big acidity and lots of oak, it's immediately clear that this wine needs amble time to open and develop. Rich, spicy on the palate, while bursting with dark cherry and charcoal flavors, make sure you decant this well before you intend to drink it. This is a big wine that needs a lot of patience to experience its full glory!

This 2004 Tempranillo from Rioja, Spain is very good. Deep ruby color with a mid to tight rim variation. Fruit notes of black cherry and plum with a hint of licorice. It has a long finish on the palette with low acidity. This wine is in its peak (2011 - 2016). Best served chilled to 62 degrees, double decanted, and served with a chicken & choriso paella.

Nose with Mokka, Plum, Cherry and some Blackforest smoked ham. On the palate the Tannins are still dominant and there is a lack of fruit in relation to the oak. Already a great wine, but some more years are necessary to perfection.

I didn't like this wine as much as I expected I would - to me it seemed "hot" - too alcoholic and not as smooth as I would expect from this area - perhaps too young to drink just now?

    The 2010 Torre Muga was one of the first new-wave Riojas and it has already demonstrated that it ages in a classical style (first vintage was 1991) but winemaking has gained much in precision since that first vintage the different varieties are picked and fermented separately and you can feel a much more compact and balanced wine in recent vintages with more subtle and better integrated oak. It is sourced from the oldest family vineyards blending 70% Tempranillo 20% Graciano and 10% Mazuelo

    Raised for 16 months in French oak and inspired by the familys respect for Bordeaux the 2009 Torre Muga has a very primal bouquet with creme de cassis black currant and vanilla with fine delineation although it is very tight at the moment. The palate is full-bodied with grippy bold assertive tannins and layers of dense black mocha-tinged fruit with hints of white pepper. It has great power and volume without compromising balance although it requires several years in bottle. Drink 2018-2035. 92+ -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

    Aromen von dunkler, schöner Frucht, Noten von Bitterschokolade. Im Geschmack feine Säure, satte Struktur. Im Abgang Geschmack von feinem Holz.

    Toast and cola notes frame rich plum and fig flavors in this concentrated red, which is bright and polished, though theres depth under the muscular tannins. Impressive in the modern style. Best from 2011 through 2021. 1,000 cases imported. -TM Wine Spectator. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2006 Muga Rioja Torre Muga 750ml

    Tiefdunkles Rot mit schwarzem Kern. Dunkles, komplexes Bouquet mit Noten von getrockneten Früchten, Kräuter, Leder, Tabak, Rauch und etwas Stahl. Sehr dicht gewobene Struktur, kernige noch etwas trockene Gerbstoffe, kühl wirkend, lang anhaltend!

    Dichtes, dunkles Rot. Komplexes Bouquet mit Aromen von dunklen Früchten, Lebkuchengewürz, Tabak. Am Gaumen ein weicher und breitschultriger Auftakt gefolgt von einer gewaltigen Struktur im langen Mittelteil. Das Tannin perfekt gereift, dazu viel Frische. Klingt lange auf Beeren- und Kaffenoten aus.
