92 points Jay S. Miller (Wine Advocate): "The 2003 Torre Muga from a torridly hot vintage is a glass-coating opaque purple color. Dense with a roasted character, it has plenty of power but lacks elegance. Nevertheless, it is a solid effort from a difficult vintage. (Jun 2010)"
92 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Inky ruby. Impressively fresh aromas don't suggest a hot year: spicy red berries, cherry-vanilla, anise, rose and lavender. Fresh red fruit flavors are brightened by zesty minerality and complicated by suggestions of licorice candy, mocha and floral pastille. A crisp, focused Rioja that finishes with gentle grip and very good length. (Sep 2007)"
