Brand Bodegas Muga
The purple-coloured hues around the rim reflect its youth. On the nose you find black fruit aromas at the peak of ripeness, spicy black pepper aromas and woodland herbs. Balsamic herb nuances appear with rosemary and some smoky notes from the ageing in top class oak casks, creating a harmony and balance which cannot be matched. In the mouth we can find the juicy, elegant tannins with a nice sharp acidity to balance the palate. Hints of liquorice and the pepper return. A very persistent, elegant, enjoyable and approachable wine. You can pair this wine with red meat left to hang for a good time, game or failing that, enjoy it on its own. We can also recommend it to accompany grilled white fish.

A magical wine, the 2015 Torre Muga checks in as 80% Tempranillo and the balance a mix of Mazuelo and Graciano (the latter from one of the oldest vineyards in the Rioja Alta region). Its deep purple color is followed by extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, smoked earth, cedarwood, graphite, and flowery incense. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, with ultra-fine tannins and no hard edges, it builds incrementally on the palate, has beautiful purity, and is just a heavenly wine. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age but will keep for 2-3 decades.

In the end, they also showed me the 2015 Torre Muga, even though the wine had only been in bottle for three months. There were no substantial changes in the way this was made-in provenance of the grape, the fermentation or élevage-even though they fine-tune the use of the oak in every vintage. I don't think I've ever tasted such a young and fruit-driven Torre Muga, and even though it felt a little dizzy from the recent bottling, it had great purity and such a structure and build that it is going to need some time in bottle. But this looks like a better vintage than the 2014.

Blackberry and currant flavors mingle with espresso, black olive and licorice flavors in this structured red. Balsamic acidity and a firm tannic backbone keep this focused. A bit austere, but harmonious. Drink now through 2030.
