This is a wonderful wine to have a bunch of on hand. Eileen and I drank 2 bottles over the last 2 days. It is a light to medium bodied red with black and red fruit, spice and an earthy component that lends some complexity. Has good balance and a nice finish. Paired with spinich lasagna and salad with balsamic dressing last night, terrific! Nice low alcohol at 12.4%alc/vol. $5. For me this is a nice "when I get home from work late" wine as I can have a couple of glasses and get up early the next morning with no fuzzyness!
RP's take on it.
â€œVina Antiguaâ€™s 2005 Tintoâ€¦is a stunning value. It bursts from the glass with spicy red fruits and coats the palate with blackberries as well as red cherries. ..a satin textured, light to medium bodied red for enourmously pleasing quaffingâ€
