Tinata 2012, The Wine Advocate

The 2012 Tinata is 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache. This wine pushes the boundaries and is almost too much of a good thing. Its hugely rich and extracted style will not appeal to everyone. Dark fruit, pressed blackberry, prune and dried plums characterize the wine’s opulent bouquet. Beyond those fruity tones are heavy notes of spice, tar and tobacco. I’d suggest giving this wine another year or two.
