“There was no 2012 or 2013 produced, so we jumped from the 2011 to the 2014 Torre Muga, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano and 10% Mazuelo from the middle of the slope in the village of Villalba de Rioja (where the Muga family comes from). It combines the freshness of the higher-altitude vineyards of the Prado Enea with the power of the lower ones used for the Muga range. It fermented in oak vats and had a shorter élevage of only 15 months (it used to be more), and the different varieties were kept separated until the penultimate racking when they were blended. There is more volume here and some more spice from the élevage, with an open and expressive nose. It’s medium-bodied with some fine tannins and less weight in the mid-palate than other vintages. 20,000 bottles produced.” Wine Advocate #235

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
