    January 16, 2015 - First bottle of Tinta for me and I liked it. Better with food than by itself. Fruit is ripe and rich, but somewhat one-dimensional. Mostly cherry along with licorice, leather and herbs. Full-bodied with good depth and length and a rich, smooth texture. Not really elegant...a bit more like the wine equivalent of comfort food, but I liked it ... especially for the price.

    January 14, 2015 - Simple, smooth-more of a third bottle of the night kind of wine.

    November 21, 2014 - dark ruby colour, cherry, smooth tannins, some air helps it open a bit and get even smoother. nice QPR.

    September 23, 2014 - I have had this wine twice with consistent notes. Very solid and decent QPR with full bodied notes of vanilla, dried black cherry and mild tobacco tinged herbal undertones. The vanilla definitely stood front and center on both occasions I had it and was a bit distracting, but for it's size the wine is balanced and well made. Others seemed to enjoy this much more than I did. Decent QPR at $15, but one can do better.
