Quick Overview

The 2009 TINTO opens tight, with strong herbal notes, a little roasted cherry nuance, and, after extended aeration, a touch of game. It has fine mid-palate concentration. The Alicante Bouschet (80%) seems quite ripe and the Trincadeira (20%) seems a bit assertive, likely responsible for a little funk. It is a complex flavor profile that I suspect will not be to everyone’s taste, but those who like it will probably love the wine. As always with this winery, it is a well constructed wine with a lingering finish that should age very well. It shows far better the next day, when its structure finally had a chance to show its stuff. Drink Now-2026 17.5/20 Jancis Robinson

Details

Not so easy to appreciate at this stage on a quick taste, its score climbed the longer I had it open. There is an underlying cranberry-laced crispness and intensity on the finish that was not apparent early on. It should serve this wine well as it ages, but let’s hope the aromatics remain under control. Drink now-2026 17.5/20 Jancis Robinson
