The 2008 Monteverro Tinata is deep, of a cherry colour with purple hints on the rim. The nose is an explosion of lavender, blueberries, black currant, tulips, black cherry, chocolate and cedar wood. The palate is intense and velvety, offering blueberries, blackberries and dark coco powder balanced with red cherry, lingering on rose petals.
Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Tinata (Syrah, Grenache) is a super-ripe wine bursting with plums, blackberries and blueberries. This is an especially opulent wine loaded with fruit and a generous dose of French oak. Though outstanding and beautifully balanced, Tinata appears to still be a work in progress. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
