    Winemaker's Notes:

    Varietal Composition: Touriga Nacional; Tinto Cão; Touriga Franca; Tinta Roriz; Sousão.

    The wine was made entirely from grapes of QUINTA do NOVAL –Vale de Mendiz – Pinhão - in the heart of the Douro valley.

    This wine is produced exclusively from selected plots on the Quinta and trodden by foot in our lagares and is only declared when various factors combine to make an exceptional year. Intensely powerful and concentrated, this wine is adapted to age in bottle, developing over years, releasing a complex variety of flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    With its inky dark color, this is darkly dense, a huge mouthful of black fruits and dark, initially medicinal flavors and firm, concentrated tannins. It will age 20 years at least, but its sweet, ripe fruit suggest it could be drunk much earlier than that.

    Has lots of grapey, stemmy, rich aromas. Full-bodied, lightly sweet and chewy, with plenty of grip. Layered and rich. Serious and structured. All there for the vintage. Best after 2017.

    Wine Spectator

    This blend is extreme in its structural tension, a vast amount of blackberry and datelike fruit pulled in the direction of searingly dry, mineral tannin. The alcohol increases that impression of austerity. Bottle age should relieve some of the tension; for best enjoyment beyond 15 years from the vintage.
