ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS - "Fashioned from an interesting blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged three months in French oak, Read More...
the opaque purple-colored 2011 Pur displays notes of salty sea breezes, wet rocks, intense blueberry and black raspberry fruit, and hints of roasted meats and bouquet garni. This superb effort comes from relatively young vines planted just above sea level. It should drink well for 4-5 years."

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2012 Mauro is produced with 90% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah from different vineyards in the villages of Tudela de Duero, Traspinedo, Read More...
Santibanez and Quintanilla de Onesimo, where the soils are rich in chalk and clay, with sandy and stony parts. The wine matured in oak barrels for some 16 months and was finally bottled in June 2014. It’s fresher than the 2011, mixing aromas of red and black fruit. The oak is well-integrated, with good balance and a certain elegance. The palate is medium-bodied, with good acidity and highly-polished, fine tannins. A great version of Mauro. Drink 2015-2018."
MUGA 06 PRADO ENEA
MUGA 2006 PRADO ENEA GRAN RESERVA

WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2006 Prado Enea is a phenomenal bottle of traditional Rioja at its best. A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha Read More...
and the remaining 10% Mazuelo and Graciano aged for a long time in oak and bottled before release. This is a practice quite common from yesteryear, but that is a true rarity today. The technical data provided talks about incredible parameters, 14% alcohol and a pH of 3.39, both extremely low for a warm vintage like 2006. The grapes are sourced from higher-altitude terraced plots where the climate is cooler and drier and the soils are rich in clay. This is a wine that is not automatically produced every year. The wine spends its elevage in oak containers of different size, origin and age for no less than three years. The nose is intoxicating with a superb mixture of tertiary and more primary aromas like old furniture, cloves, cracked pepper, incense and cigar ash plus cherries in liqueur (that Garnacha!). The palate is medium-bodied, with great freshness (Jorge Muga tells me the pH is stabilized with aging in barrel), acidity and balance, with a silky texture, ultra-fine tannins and great persistence and length. This wine feels younger than it is, and seems to be aging at a glacial pace. With the stuffing and balance it has this should make very old bones, and drink greatly throughout its life. Superb! At this quality level the price seems like a bargain. 90,000 bottles produced. The next Prado Enea will be 2009 as they didn't get what they look for in this wine in either 2007 and 2008. Those were two cold vintages, and 2007 had 100 liters of rain during the harvest. Prado Enea is harvested in November and in 2008 there was frost at the end of October."

Prado Enea from Muga continues to impress with its amazing depth and complexity and is only produced in years when Muga feels the quality level is high enough to merit its release. In fact, there will be no Prado Enea released for the 2007 or 2008 vintages. For Muga lovers, this is one to stock up on while it is available. This wine sets itself apart with its combination of deep fruit flavors and secondary aromas gained from extensive oak aging. This is a gorgeous bottle of wine.

JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS - " A round and silky red with deep and rich fruit and floral aromas. Wet earth too. Full-bodied, racy and beautiful. Read More...
True Rioja. This comes from older vines of tempranillo with an average age of 20 years or more. Maceration is a little longer. Six months in new French oak and then 24 months in old French and American oak barrels. One and a half years in bottle."


Bodegas Muga is one of our favorite Spanish producers and we love just about anything with their name on it. Why is that? Is it because their winemaking skill has been honed and passed down through generations? Yes! Is it because they honor traditional winemaking while still being open to innovation? Yes! Is it because their wine is flat-out delicious? Absolutely! Simply put, this wine rocks and makes us happy when we drink it!

What makes this special selection so special are the Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano grapes which are grown at higher elevation in calcareous soils. In the sunny yet cooler conditions, the grapes ripen very slowly on the vine and achieve perfect ripeness and balance. The resulting wine is richer with a more intense purple color, greater purity of fruit and deeper flavors than the regular Reserva bottling.

WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "The Mugas are happy with the 2011 harvest. The 2011 Torre Muga is a dark-colored, almost opaque, ripe and concentrated effort. (Read More...
It contains the Tempranillo that would normally be part of the Aro, and was not produced because they didn't get the Graciano they needed.) They are selling this very young (but still, it will not be released until around September 2015). It is quite heady with aromas of ripe plums, spices, lead pencil, ink and well-integrated oak. The palate is full-bodied, round and lush with plenty of dense and concentrated tannins that feel very young. If you have in mind the Torre Muga from the beginning, this has a lot less oak and is less extracted; it has much better balance. As usual, it's a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and others, from a very cold zone close to the Oja-Tirón rivers, which might explain why this wine is so fresh in such warm vintage. There will be no Torre Muga in 2012 or 2013, and possibly very little 2014. So stock up on this if you want a wine like it, because it will keep and develop well in bottle."

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - " "They didn’t bottle Dalmau in 2008, so they are already releasing the 2009 Dalmau Reserva now, which shows a more Read More...
modern profile than the Reserva or the Castillo de Ygay. It’s a blend of 74% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Graciano from a single vineyard called Canaja, planted in 1950, which yields one kilo of grapes per plant. The different varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel and oak vats. The wine carries out its malolactic fermentation in new Allier barrels, where it matures for a further twenty months, but the varieties are kept separated for the first 13-14 months. The wine is left to settle in concrete vats for six months before being bottled. It displays a dark ruby color, a serious nose with some balsamic, minty notes, and aromas of licorice, cedar wood, smoke, cigar ash, a mixture of red and black fruit, and spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. It feels more Atlantic than Mediterranean. The palate is round and elegant, with great acidity, amulti-dimensional character, and a very long finish. 22,500 bottles were filled. Drink 2014-2028. "

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2010 Numanthia comes from a cooler vintage than the 2009 – a season when Manuel Louzada told me that he had to wear Read More...
a pullover in the vineyard during picking! It is aged for 21 months in new French oak. The bouquet demonstrates more fruit concentration and clarity than the 2009, the 0.5% less alcohol making a tangible difference. The aromatics are more Medoc-like than the 2009. The palate is full-bodied with mouth-gripping tannins, yet it has a silky smooth texture. There is real attack on the mid-palate, perhaps a little more vigor and tension with hints of graphite and sous-bois towards the strict finish. This is due to be launched in September 2013 and should be at the top of any Toro-lovers’ list – maybe even above Termanthia? Drink 2018-2028+."

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2009 Pago de Carrovejas El Anajon de la Cuesta de las Liebres (to give it its full name), is Tinto Fino blended with 6% Read More...
Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot and raised for 12 months in French oak, has a much better, more refined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a suggestion of wild heather and cedar. The palate is full-bodied with good backbone and structure, while the crisp acidity keeps the graphite-tinged finish agile and focused. This is very impressive. Drink now-2017."

STEPHEN TANZER 93 POINTS - "Glass-staining ruby. Explosive, smoke- and spice-accented dark berry compote and floral scents are complicated by notes of spicecake and vanilla. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a refreshing touch of blood orange. Rich but energetic, with superb finishing clarity, slow-building tannins and lingering sweetness".

Founded in 1988 in Penafiel, Pago de Carraovejas was founded by Jose Maria Ruiz. The former restaurateur released his inaugural vintage in 1993 (the 1991) and they have not looked back since. The wines comes from a single 140 hectare vineyard planted with 75% Tinto Fino and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and the wines are raised in a mixture of American and French oak, a judicious one-third renewed each year. These wines have a lot to offer: well-crafted and full of personality, the judicious use of Bordeaux varieties adds a little je ne sais quoi to the blend. These are well worth seeking out.
