This was possibly the most spectactular red I had in the first half of 2007. I think this has to be one of the wines with most ageing potential in the entire 2004 Spanish vintage. It's got striking power and sharpness right from its blue-black colour through to its astonishing persistent and gripping finish. It takes a little while to open up, but after a time, displays splendid, port-like notes of figs, dates, crushed fruit, tar, wet stones, minerals, black pepper and cassis. The palate is a tremendous tsunami of tongue-searing tannins of ridiculous power. Curiously, in spite of this "monster" profile, Pintia is a wine of remarkably balanced structure and poise. The finish releases fantastic, perfumed waves of black and blue forest fruits. This is one of the great wines of the 2004 vintage in Spain - perhaps, in the world. It beats all the reds I had in the first six months of 2007, and I had some good ones. And here's the best bit: if there are any left, it costs less than £35 in the UK (about $60). (In Spain you can pay less than €30 or $40 for it).
