Winemaker Notes: This wine is deep dark and intense. It shows a complex, fresh and elegant aroma of dark berry fruits, with balsamic notes and integrated spicy notes from oak barrel aging. The palate is firm and concentrated with balancing and present aci

Critical Acclaim

93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2015 Reserva is an old-vines (vines from 1980 to 1987) field blend—Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and others—aged for 12 months in used French oak. It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. Tasted next to the Assobio this issue, this justifies the step up with more concentration and power. It was also showing its wood a bit too much on opening, marring the purity that the Assobio has, but an hour of air fixed that. Then, the fruit, structure and velvety texture took over unimpeded. Tightly wound and very focused, this full-bodied yet precise Tinto also manages to maintain its freshness. It shows more and more purity as it airs out. Its finish is long and gripping. The tannins are not astringent, but there are some.
93 pts Wine Enthusiast:  This wine is made from a wide selection of Douro grapes. They give power and richness as well as solidly textured tannins and concentrated black fruits. The wood aging adds spice and pepper as well as broadening out the structure. Drink from 2022.
