A superb example of the quality of Touriga Nacional. This wine combines the richness of the hot Alentejo sun with the sophisticated structure of the grape. Big, juicy and richly fruity as well as perfumed and elegant. Age it for at least 2–3 years.
The initial wood flavors dominate this still-young wine. With its tight mineral character and black currant fruits, it is very focused despite its power and intensity. The flavors open slowly over many hours, emphasizing the need for 4–5 years’ aging.
The Dão region has some superb expressions of Touriga Nacional and this is one of them. With its richly perfumed fruit, dusty tannins, spiced damson and blueberry flavors, this is a great wine, ready for drinking in another 4–5 years.
An obviously new-wood-aged wine, with a modern mint flavor and sweet wood tannins. It is very structured, still young, its spice and dark chocolate flavor going well with the black fruits. Age this complex wine for 3–4 years.
This pure varietal has great perfumed fruit, and smoky aromas. Smoky wood flavors and black currant fruit, balanced with ripeness, create a gallery of intense black fruit characters. This manages to balance power with elegance, a great achievement.
A powerful, impressive wine, which brings together very ripe fruit and fine juicy acidity and solid tannins. The fruit is concentrated, black plums and a herbal layer. The aftertaste has acidity, but also ripeness.
A serious, impressive wine, packed with the dark tannins of Touriga Nacional. It also has an elegance that gives it shape, structure and surprising poise for such a rich, juicy wine. The fruit is ripe, flavored with dark berries, cranberry tannins and some wood spice. Age for 3–4 years.
