WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - “Finely textured, with pure and powerful flavors of dark currant, black olive, red plum and wild cherry, accented by notes of molten licorice. Latent tannins and vibrant acidity give this a lively mouthfeel, offering a refined finish of chocolate mousse. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases imported.”

2011 Quinta Do Vallado Touriga Nacional is a rare gem comprised of 100% Touriga Nacional given 95 points by Wine Spectator it is “Highly Recommended”. With a dark crimson color that boasts great concentration it is filled with aromas of bergamot, dried fruit and wild cherries. The taste is elegant, round and mature, with refined tannins. Red fruits follow through from the nose into a long concentrated, fresh finish. With only 500 cases imported this treasure is ready to drink now or can be cellared through 2022.

“I believe it impossible to think of any other wine region anywhere in the world that has produced better wine in this year,” said British wine critic Jancis Robinson in relation to the Douro Valley 2011 vintage which is being heralded as the greatest vintage of the last 100 years or more. The Duoro Valley experienced perfect conditions for the 2011 vintage: cool spring, hot summer and just enough rain before the grapes were harvested; so as to plump them up and prevent the overripe dried raisin-y character that is so indicative of hotter years to come through.
