Senior Torres is at it again – hitting the market with a $12 bottle of Tempranillo and Cab Sav wine – Torres Infinite – that is delicious and tastes like a good $12 bottle of wine . That may not sound like a compliment but it’s meant as one. I have bought many $12 bottles that should have been priced at $5 so that I could have overlooked them as cheap and poorly made instead of buying them and being thoroughly disappointed.
I hope this doesn’t sound like a backhanded compliment but as I was drinking this wine I kept thinking, “This isn’t bad” and realizing that it was in fact quite good. Not too much fruit – but good Tempranillo fruitiness. Not too sharp – but nice tannic finish. It doesn’t taste like a $30 wine – but it would be great at a BBQ with steak or burgers.
It’s a good wine!
