Quinta de la Rosa, Estate Douro Tinto 750ml 2015Portugal, Douro
'The 2015 Tinto is approximately a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Tinta Roriz, aged for 12 months in an 80/20 mixture of used and new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Light and not showing a lot of concentration, this excels at everything else. It shows the fine flavors of the vintage in a serious way; the fruit is vivid and well supported by the structure. It tightens noticeably with air, seeming more serious with every ten-minute interval. Even with the modest mid-palate, this is pretty terrific. It tastes great, often seems very serious and finishes well. It is a great choice for a well-priced house pour that can age a bit. You can approach this young, but waiting another few months, if not a year, would help it become more expressive and harmonious.' – The Wine Advocate, 89/100
