Infinite 2008 wine review by (PB)
The Torres family have a special place in my wine heart as they were one of the first wines I cut my teeth on so to speak in my early days of wine education some 30 years ago. The Torres family always seemed to put out wines that were higher in quality than their price tag would indicate.
This wine is made by the Torres family exclusively for the folks at Sam's Club. It was sent to me for review compliments of the folks at Sam's.
It is a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a purple/garnet hue with nice aromas of sweet fruit, wild blackberry, pepper, tobacco and leather.
Palate: Soft texture and fruit with light pepper and relaxed tannins for such a young wine.
With some air time, ripe fruit with loads of berries and a decent finish.
This new line of wine will be around $8 and I might add that it has a very nicely designed label.
