(80% tempranillo, with garnacha, mazuelo and graciano; aged in large oak vats for 16 months, followed by another 36 months in small oak barrels and then another 3 years in bottle before release): Deep ruby. Heady, mineral-tinged red fruit and rose scents are complemented by star anise, vanilla and woodsmoke. Supple, seamless and concentrated, offering intense raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors underscored by zesty minerality. Shows uncommon finesse for its power and finishes sweet, focused and extremely long. For the money, this is a crazy value.

Clear ruby red. Nice aromatic nose of camphor and dark cherry. Smooth, mouth coating earthy palate. Tart bright fruit, almost strawberry.

About This Producer


Founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and his wife Aurora Cano, this winery has enjoyed deserved acclaim for its traditional-style winemaking. The vineyards, situated upon the east and south-facing slopes of the Obarenes Mountains of La Rioja, are the key to the exquisite wines. The multiplier effect of the four grape varieties used - Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano - is readily appreciated upon opening. The wines are wonderful manifestations of the classic grapes of Rioja and range in style from red-fruit elegance to black fruit profundity. The S�leccion Especial follows more of the former and folds in rich doses of toasty oak, vibrant acidity and spice, while the Torre Muga is a giant of blackberry, black plum, dark chocolate and chewy tannins.
