"The purple-colored 2006 Tinto is made up of 86% Tempranillo and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 16 months in French oak. The nose displays a brooding aromatic array of Asian spices, damp earth, mineral, blackberry, and violets. Dense and stacked on the palate, the wine is still a bit tightly wound and will benefit from 4-6 years of additional cellaring. Incipiently complex and exceptionally lengthy, it should be at its best from 2025 to 2031." —Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate

"Vivid ruby. Heady aromas of red and dark berry preserves, smoky minerals, incense and Indian spices. Creamy and sweet, offering sweet raspberry and blueberry flavors and showing no rough edges. A peppery note comes up with air and adds energy to the long, juicy finish. This is drinking well now." —Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
