Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 99
Even better than the magical 2015, the 2016 Torre Muga offers a thrilling bouquet of cassis and assorted pure dark fruits, lead pencil, graphite, white flowers, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. While this cuvee is always thought of as the most modern in the lineup, it's far from it and has integrated oak, flawless balance, sweet tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's beautifully done and just a thrilling bottle of Rioja that's going to evolve for 20-30 years or more. Drink now-2050.

Wine Tasting Notes
The dense legs that this wine reveals are a sign of its enormous elegance. The purple-colored 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 wood-land 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 licorice and the pepper return. A very persistent, elegant, enjoyable and approachable wine.

FOOD PAIRING
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.
