Pintia Toro 2004
95+ points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): Bodegas Pintia is owned by the famous estate, Vega Sicilia. The 2004 Pintia comes from a superior vintage. Similarly styled to its older sibling, it is simply more flamboyant and opulent. The temptation is to drink this heady effort now but those who can delay gratification for a few years will be amply rewarded. (Feb 2007)

Decantado por 1 hora. NM. Nariz potente mas elegante, frutos negros em destaque, tostado, leve nota mineral. Meio de boca com textura aveludada, amplo, boa acidez, concentração de fruta e complexidade. Taninos finos, numerosos e marcantes, madeira elegante porém não completamente integrada ainda. Bastante jovem, é todo estrutura e potencial, merecia um tempo de decantação bem maior. Remete por vezes ao 2003, porém mais fino e bem acabado. Melhor também que o 2002, só não dá ainda pra dizer que vai superar o espetacular 2001 -- mas tem potencial pra isso. Quem agüentar esperar, deixe para abrir a partir de 2011, pois será recompensado com um grande vinho. 92-94+pts. E.
External Reviews for Pintia Toro
Bodegas Pintia is owned by Vega Sicilia. Pintia is located further west along the Duero River inside the warmer D.O. of Toro. The estate owns 96 hectares of land. The first vintage released was the 2001. As for the 2005 Pintia, it is 100% Tinta de Toro aged for one year in new French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a complex perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, ripe, layered wine with intense flavors, serious complexity, and exceptional length. It has enough structure to unfold for another 4-6 years and drink well through 2025.
Dark ruby. Brooding, very ripe, lightly roasted dark berry and plum aromas tinged by expresso, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. Warm and toasty, with a strong oak spice accent to the roasted cherry and cassis flavors. With air, exotic oak spice and leather emerge, as well as solid, chunky tannins. Finishes ripe, deep and sweet, with strong berry liqueur and coffee flavors. Seriously ripe but also nicely balanced, the fruit just this side of roasted and compellingly sweet.
Very young but exuberant and balanced. Tasted in Spain well after bottling but before its March 2008 release, Pintia, Vega Sicilia's Toro project, comes across as a bull of a wine with huge levels of color and extraction. Floral, mineral and violet aromas lead off, followed by deep berry fruit flavors and lots of rustic charred beef on the finish. Hold until 2009 and drink through 2014.

Inky purple. Alluring bouquet of blackberry and blueberry preserves, cherry-cola and vanillin oak spices. Broad, fleshy and deep, with sweet flavors of dark berries, floral pastille and vanilla beans. The rich fruit nicely absorbs the oak element on the long, velvety finish. Leaves a wide swath of creamy dark fruits and licorice in its wake. Pretty sexy stuff.
