Avante 2011 Tinto Fino 100% Tempranillo Dry Red Wine, $11.89-$13.99, 90 points, poured broadly black with flashes of purple/red, a moderately leggy bowl, and a clear wine ring.
Aromatic black fruit, mulberry, mocha, and sea mist were quite lovely.
Near full-bodied with good acidity and a soft underlayment of tannin unfurled flavors reflective of the aromas onto the palate with pomegranate and truffle.
Finished earthy and spicy while expressing well the 14% alcohol.
