This is tremendously representative of top wines coming out of Portugal nowadays. About fiftry years ago, a movemener started to produce dry wines out of the Douro valley instead of sweet, fortified port styles. These powerful red blends have become a fantastic value in the wine world for world-class full-bodied, age-worthy wines. While collectors seem interested, they still are reluctant to try these robust, polished styles. The wines provide all you want out of a classic Napa wine, but with a pinch of old world structure and a stroke of minerality. A powerful spike of ripe (but not jammy!) fruit to open, followed by a grippy structure that tightens down the hatches. With 75% New French Oak, this wine isnt shy. If you're a Napa lover looking to get into Portugal, or an Old World wine lover trying to share great wine with New World loving friends, this is a bright middle ground.
