2008 Bodegas y Vinedos Pintia Toro

SKU #1305217 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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 – less sexy than the 2007 but still seductive. (NM)  (4/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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. (ST)  (9/2012)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
