Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

(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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

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.

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

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.

Wine Varietal: Tempranillo


Tempranillo is Spain's noble grape. Grown mostly in northern Spain, some of the best Tempranillo wine comes from the regions of Rioja and the Ribera del Duero. This grape enjoys cooler climates and is sensitive to pests and adverse weather conditions. While Tempranillo can be bottled alone, it is often blended with other Spanish grapes such as Grenache, Carignan, and more recently, Cabernet Sauvignon. Tempranillo is also grown in the Duero region of Portugal where the grapes are commonly blended to make Port. Tempranillo wines may be consumed young, but are regarded as being at their best when aged. There are a multitude of synonyms for Tempranillo depending on where it is grown. Typical descriptors for Tempranillo include berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, leather, meat and herbs.
