A bit burly still, but clearly on the mature side, as the tarry grip is melding into the core of roasted fig, plum and prune flavors. Singed juniper, mint and cedar notes score the finish, with an echo of warm ganache lingering. 91 Points Wine Spectator, December 2017.
Bottled 2007. VINEYARD: Quinta da Madalena & Quinta do Vale Coelho
FERMENTATION: The grapes are harvested in the fall and are fermented for a short period of time before the addition of 100% grape spirit alcohol. This step stops fermentation, preserves the wine’s natural grape sugars, and gives it its unique richness. The wine is aged for four years in cask, then bottled unfiltered and aged for a minimum of five more years before its release.
Shelf life after opening: 2 – 4 months
