    Comparing the 2006 Pintia to the 2004 and 2005, this is the one that has the most exuberance with generous cassis and black currant aromas. Initially, you suspect that it might be a touch over-ripe, but it calms down in the glass and becomes more refined. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, succulent tannins. This is very fleshy, a Pintia with more volume than its predecessors, although I am more taken with the delineation and tension demonstrated by the previous vintage.

    (100% tinta de toro raised in all new oak, 70% French and 30% American) Deep ruby with a bright rim. Sexy, expressive aromas of red and dark berries, incense, Asian spices and cola. The red berry quality dominates the palate, gaining complexity from notes of clove, rose pastille and sassafras and taking on a building spiciness on the finish. The tannins in this wine seem already absorbed.
