Finca Antigua 2005

  • Area: Spain, LaMancha
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 82 Dilettante 82
Description: This wine has the typical tempranillo nose of spice, plums and wood. The sweet attack morphs into a vivid, puckery persimmon mouth feel with metallic undertones. Tangy, dry spice finish. The fruit is knocking, but it can't get out. Suitable for cooking and it would probably make a good beef bourgingon. Decanting 40 minutes loosens it up a bit.

Price: $7
