Palate Profile

Pintia 2018 is the probably most vertical and fruitiest Pintia, but also has a lot of intrigue. A wine with a very silky texture that can be enjoyed now, but has an incredible finish.

 

Critic Awards

Brooding but fresh nose, with tarry blackberries and fresh blue fruit. Iron, wet stones, violets and a hint of mocha, too. Full-bodied, mineral and broad on the palate with a stony feel, though not heavy at all. A really elegant, nuanced and extremely poised Pintia that you can enjoy now and for the next decade. A really eclectic Pintia showing more elegance and calculation.

The nose is very expressive, with bright cherry fruit, and the wine is fresher than the norm in the region, with integrated alcohol and oak, reflecting a very cool year, floral and perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals very fine and elegant tannins. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Pintia.

A smooth, creamy red, medium- to full-bodied, though understated at first. Features flavors of mulled cherry, black plum reduction, cocoa powder and tar-tinged smoke that are seamlessly knit with fine-grained tannins, expanding slowly on a palate carried by balsamico acidity. Long, fragrant finish.
