Pintia Toro 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Cherry red with purple hues. Continuing the history of the Pintia wines, this vintage is a powerful wine, with wild fruit aromas such as blackcurrant or blueberry. Wood is present but not dominant. The attack is opulent without rusticity, it is full on the palate, ending with a vibrant finish." [*A property of the great Vega Sicilia estate]*Tasting notes from the winery

The 2008 Pintia has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dark plum mulberry and fresh cherry the new oak neatly folded into the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy silky smooth entry. The tannins here are very fine with dark cherries a touch of sloe and spices that become more pronounced toward the focused finish. This is perhaps the most feminine 2008 so far

Opaque ruby. Sexy oak-spiced aromas of cassis cherry-cola and incense with a peppery topnote. Offers deeply pitched dark berry compote flavors and brighter notes of allspice and star anise with a vanilla undertone. Livelier on a finish that leaves suggestions of candied flowers and mocha. Quite suave and approachable already but this one will be better in a few more years. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
