RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

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?
Have tried the 1998 and 2005, but the 2004 Torre Muga is the epitome of contemporary Rioja wine. Coffee and spice first on the nose and palate, with currant and cherries soon to follow. Tannins are still young, but who can wait for that...
External Reviews for Prado Enea Gran Riserva
The 2004 Prado Enea Gran Reserva is not quite as dense as the 2005 but is more expressive on the nose and rounder on the palate. It is a complete effort that should prove to be one of the best Prado Eneas Muga has produced. -Jay Miller Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Muga Prado Enea Rioja Gran Reserva 750ml
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.
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.
The prestigious, modern-styled 1998 Torre Muga was aged 22 months in American oak vats, followed by 16 months in new French oak. It was bottled without filtration. Sadly, there are only 1,500 cases for the American market. A deep ruby/plum color accompanies the gorgeously sweet bouquet of licorice, black cherries, currants, and plums. As the wine sits in the glass, notions of spice box and tobacco also emerge. Medium-bodied, opulent, expansive, pure, well-delineated, it will provide immense pleasure over the next 10-15 years. Sadly, there are only 1,500 cases for the American market.
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.
Dunkles, reifes Ziegelrot. Komplexes Bukett: Zigarrenkistchen, Leder, Tabak, reife, dunkle Beerenfrucht, Waldboden. Im Gaumen balanciert, mit feinem, leicht herbem Gerbstoff. Frische Säure stützt den mittelgewichtigen Wein. Recht langer Abgang. Ein klassischer, reifer Rioja mit sehr vielschichtiger Aromatik.
