(70% tempranillo, 20% garnacha, 7% mazuelo and 3% garciano; aged for 28 months in small oak barrels): Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cherry and vanilla, with a bright floral accent. Lush and palate-staining, offering intense dark berry preserve and cherry-cola flavors that become spicier with air. Deep and rich but surprisingly lively, finishing with impressive energy and floral persistence.

Loads of raspberry dominate this win. Good body and finish but too fruit forward for me.

Wine Spectator: Powerful yet harmonious, this rich red delivers black cherry, licorice, fresh herb, smoke and mineral flavors that mingle seamlessly over firm, well-integrated tannins, while balsamic-tinged acidity drives the flavors through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 21,000 cases made. 'TM

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.
