Aveleda 2005 Follies Touriga Nacional-Cabernet Sauvignon (Bairrada)

  • Best Buy
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $14

The partner to Aveleda’s pure Touriga Nacional Follies, this is a finer wine, with its complexity of flavors coming from the blend. It has red berry and black plum fruit flavors, sweetened by dried prunes and held together by rich, dry tannins.

This concentrated, wood-aged wine is full of ripe red berry fruits and smooth vanilla tannins. The Touriga Nacional gives a perfumed character, along with dusty tannins and final acidity. It needs aging to bring out the final balance, so drink from 2017.

  • Best Buy
  1. $15

This dry, spicy, solidly tannic wine is still young. Its fruit, still hidden behind the structure, promises ripe plums and berries. For now, it’s impressively powerful, with layer upon layer of chocolate and coffee marked with bright acidity on the finish. Drink from 2016.

  1. $20

Powerful and concentrated, this is a serious wine that remains juicy and fruity. The wine has a dense, dry core surrounded by rich plum and damson flavors, with a spice note from the new wood. The firm edge means it will age over several years.

From the aroma, this seems heavily wooded, but on the palate the wood spice is becoming well integrated with the dark berry fruits and mineral texture. It is certainly young. Already, though, the fruit is showing its potential richness. Give it 3–4 years.

Fiuza 2008 Premium Touriga Nacional/Cabernet Sauvigon Touriga Nacional-Cabernet Sauvignon (Tejo)

  1. $25

Firmly tannic wine, a blend of two naturally tannic grapes. Their acidity provides a counter-balance, giving a black fruit underlay, spice from wood and a dry as well as juicy aftertaste.
