2006 Bodegas y Viņedos Pintia - Toro
Wine Advocate: 92 Points
The purple-colored 2006 Pintia offers up a complex bouquet of wood smoke, forest floor, mushroom, incense, and blackberry. On the palate it is still tightly wound but well-balanced. There is plenty of savory, spicy black fruit, moderate tannin, and good depth. It should be at its best from 2013 to 2025. It is not at the level of the 2004 and 2005 vintages but it is still a strong effort.
Bodegas Pintia, a 96 hectare estate, is owned by Vega Sicilia. Pintia is located further west along the Duero River inside the warmer DO of Toro. -- Jay Miller
