"Perfect!" James Suckling

The Best Yet!

This is the best Torre Muga we have ever tasted - and there have been many excellent Torre Muga's over the years.

This tasty Tempranillo is the flagship wine from Bodegas Muga in Rioja, Spain. The flavors hit you like a wave and keep coming; it is really something special and cannot be replicated.

The secret?

Muga's high-elevation and terroir-driven fruit yields dense berries and dynamic minerality.

What We Like Most

Our favorite characteristic of this wine - which by the way could be a meal by itself - is the wave of balsamic notes that subtly runs through this beautiful red. From entry to finish, the polished tannins provide the power, but the silky fruit and gracefully balanced acidity provide the pleasure.

"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!" James Suckling

Enjoy the 2015 Bodegas Muga Torre Muga as you would your favorite California Cabernet or right bank Bordeaux - it deserves a seat at your table right next to them.
