The aromatics on the 2009 Pintia are very intense with lifted wild strawberry, raspberry, mulberry fruit interlaced by dried herbs and just a mention of cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that are in synch with the tobacco-tinged red fruit. This has very good structure and symmetry, while the finish displays fine tension and a long, spicy aftertaste. This has very good potential. - Neal Martin

There’s no denying this wine’s force. It’s 15% ABV but balanced, with roasted berry, leather, toasty oak, graphite and prune aromas. The palate feels full, flush and without gaps, while flavors of blackberry, cassis... There’s no denying this wine’s force. It’s 15% ABV but balanced, with roasted berry, leather, toasty oak, graphite and prune aromas. The palate feels full, flush and without gaps, while flavors of blackberry, cassis, chocolate and spice finish exceedingly smooth, with loamy notes and leftover spice. Drink through 2020.

Pintia is Vega Sicilia’s project in Toro, where the Alvarez family purchased 260 acres in the late 1990s and began producing wine in 2001. This wine requires some patience: When it’s first poured, the aroma seems dumb... Pintia is Vega Sicilia’s project in Toro, where the Alvarez family purchased 260 acres in the late 1990s and began producing wine in 2001. This wine requires some patience: When it’s first poured, the aroma seems dumb, needing plenty of air to reveal a scent of fruit. Then, little by little, the wine’s grand stature and powerful flavors emerge, as if it were slowly waking up from a long night of partying. Let it rest for another three years or more.

Inky ruby. Complex, seductively perfumed scents of red and dark berry preserves, pipe tobacco, potpourri and smoky Indian spices. Sweet, expansive and seamless, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors... Inky ruby. Complex, seductively perfumed scents of red and dark berry preserves, pipe tobacco, potpourri and smoky Indian spices. Sweet, expansive and seamless, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors along with notes of violet pastille and fruitcake. Shows excellent clarity and focus on the finish, which is firmed by youthful tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

Floral and spicy aromas lead to flavors of blackberry, coffee bean, licorice and tar in this graceful red. Features firm tannins under the polished surface, kept fresh by lively acidity. Tempranillo.
