Wine.comA whopper in the making, the 2001 Tinto possesses extraordinarily sweet fruit, purity, and richness. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by loads of chocolatey, black currant, cherry, raspberry, and licorice characteristics, full body, good acidity, and a long, layered finish. It should drink well for 10-15 years. -Wine Advocate 91-94 points Winemaker Alejandro Fernandez is a legend, and this elegant and fruity red from Spain will show you why. Intensely expressive in its youth, with dark fruits, leather, and spice, it is a joy to drink. In style, this will remind longtime Pesquera fans of the early export vintages, notably the 1983.
