Muga Torre Muga Rioja 2015

Muga Torre Muga Rioja 2015

Winemaker Notes:
The dense legs that this wine reveals are a sign of its enormous elegance. 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.

Blend: 75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo, and 10% Craciano.

95pts Robert Parker:
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 elevage-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.

98pts James Suckling:
This is an extremely powerful, confident wine. So young and so complex. Immaculate black cherries, plums and blackberries and deeply integrated, spicy oak that's super fresh. The power and build is staggering. It's so rich and so balanced with seamless plum-flavored tannins. Perfect!
