    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 11 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007!

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Torre Muga is not as powerful as the 2005 but displays better aromatics. It is loaded with spicy fruit with great depth and concentration, impeccable balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. Give it another 4-5 years of bottle age and drink it through 2034.

    The Wine Advocate

    Plush and harmonious, this red is alluring yet subtle, with intense flavors backed by an impressive structure. Look for black currant, cocoa, cigar box and mineral notes now, and expect further complexity as this evolves. Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano.

    Saturated ruby. Exotically perfumed, syrah-like bouquet of red and dark berries, violet, smoky bacon and graphite, with a vanillin oak spice undertone adding an exotic touch. Fleshy, palate-staining cassis and bitter cherry flavors are brightened by piquant minerality and firmed by fine-grained tannins. Cracked pepper and mace qualities come up on the long, silky finish. Extremely suave and strikingly complex wine with excellent balance.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    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.

    Wine & Spirits

    This seems eminently ageworthy; it has the strong foundation and pulsing acidity required of a true cellar dweller. The raspberry and plum fruit have a beam of acidity and the tannins are not shy. Shows all the hallmarks of a fine modern Rioja: power, purity and balance.
