  • Trinity Hill Tempranillo Gimblett 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A subtle difference from the 2005, but just as good. Fruity, smooth tannins, lush with a long finish all combine to make this another winner. Highly recommend to those looking for something different. Read More

Good minerality, with sharp acid, creaminess and vanilla + butteriness from oak. Well balanced, complex and intense with a good length. Slight phenolic bitterness on end, which doesn't detract at all from th... Read More
