WineDiva's Review

Mature, balanced, supple.
TintoNegro black wine was born of the long time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach. The two were colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years; Alejandro was vineyard director and Jeff was the wine education director.
This wine was aged 12 months in French oak (20% new).
Showing some age, this wine offers dried figs and dried cherries, which are woven with blackberry, vanilla, espresso and brown spices. It is supple with a silky and glycerol (port-like) texture and weight. The palate mimics the nose with dried fruits alongside spices and savoury flavours. A balanced wine with a sensual character.
