12. Quinto Do Aveleda Follies Touriga Nacional Beiras (2010)

« Prev 12 of 12
Thirty four hectares in a single block aged in barrique, 25% of which are new. Very smoky on the nose, almost roasting meats over a bed of tarry, dark fruits,showing a little raisin and date along with sage and rosemary notes touched with violets. Bright acids and fine tannins are well integrated in the mouth allowing this to show a nice softness with lovely balsamic notes appearing early on the palate followed by fine cut plum and tart wild strawberry jam flavors. This shows nice small yet angular tannins and has a long, slightly austere finish full of clear blue fruits. Medium bodied buy this drink some and cellar the rest for the next several years Already delicious I bet this will be even better in a year or two. 89pts
