Tineta 2011 Tinto Fino 100% Tempranillo Dry Red Wine, $15.00, 89 points, appears as a dense Shiraz purple red color with a moderately leggy clear rim.
A gentle sea-breeze aroma with sweet autumn leaves and black cherry is lovely.
The not quite medium body, with lively acids and black tea tannin, carries juicy pomegranate, red and black cherry fruit, tobacco, and spearmint, while finishing on a trailing palate with lingering spearmint, a touch of heat 14% alcohol), and white pepper.
If I had waited to buy this wine (Hannaford's in Londonderry), I might have been able to have bought it for $11.25, but I just didn't want to take the chance of it being sold-out!
