    96 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.

    95 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. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases imported.

    95 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.

    91 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.
