This wine has a deep ruby colour and intense aromas of flowers, strawberry and raspberry fruit, a touch of black pepper and wellintegrated oak. The palate has well-integrated acidity, velvety tannins, a delicate minerality and notes of red berries. The finish is elegant and long.

Big tannins mark this wine out as one to age. Its structure marches with the blackberry fruits and tense mineral texture. It is a wine that while it has structure now will develop into a broad, rich wine in the medium-term. Drink from 2020.

The 2016 Vinha Grande is a 40/25/25/10 blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca, aged for 12 to 18 months in used French oak, depending on the lots. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Showing elegance and good concentration for the level, this blends roughly equal components of Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. It has bold flavors this year, but the freshness and lift to the fruit make it refined, while the slightly tight finish adds some distinction. This is very nice. It probably doesn't have the concentration to be a long ager, but it can certainly age and even improve. Winemaker Luís Sottomayor said the good acidity may allow it to age longer than normal. Still, it doesn't need a lot of settle-down time. This is a nice deal in a graceful food wine.

Crushed red plum and juicy boysenberry flavors fill this plump red, with licorice and violet undertones to the minerally finish. Moderate tannins. Drink now through 2024. 40,452 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.
