Winemaker Notes

The 2009 vintage was #13 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

With a dark crimson color, this Touriga Nacional boasts great concentration and aromas of bergamot and wild fruits, with violet and spicy hints. The taste is sweet, round and mature, with silky tannins. Red fruits follow through from the nose into a long, concentrated, fresh finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

This rich and fruity red shows ample violet notes, with touches of cinnamon and spice to the red plum, cherry and ripe melon flavors. Smoke and tar linger on the chewy finish.

The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Touriga Nacional, sourced from the winery's 1994 plantings, was aged in French oak for 16 months, only 30% new, however. This has become one of Douro's nicer monovarietal bottlings from year-to-year. In the occasionally difficult 2010 vintage, it shows surprisingly well, crisp, bright and mouthwatering on the finish, with solidity in the mid-palate and power on the end. It was a little disjointed in its youth and not quite as aromatic when I first retasted it in the USA compared to how it showed in Douro. Ninety minutes of aeration changed that, allowing it to express its Touriga Nacional character well. It does finish a bit tart, but I loved the mouthwatering finish. For best results, give this a year or two to settle down. It has room to improve. Drink 2014-2024.
