2013 QUINTA DO VALLADO “RESERVA” DOURO

$65.00 $54.99 $54.99

Combining finesse, concentration and texture,  Portugal’s dry red wines are now taken very seriously on the world stage…  In fact, on the 2014 Wine Spectator Top 100 list, wines #1, #3 & #4 were all from the Douro region of Portugal.  A fusion of more than 30 grape varietals, Vallado’s 2013 Reserva asserts a crescendo of tightly wound, brilliantly focused fruit, magnified by a multiplex of elaborate and expressive flavors.

Encompassing fruit from ancient vines more than 90 years old, Quinta do Vallado consistently produces award winning, high quality reds that deliver intense levels of enjoyment.  Made by the same winemaker that made the #4 wine in the world in 2014, this is a terrific opportunity to taste a world-class red from this exciting region.  Very few cases of the Reserva were imported this year, and having already earned high praise from multiple sources, this one certainly won’t be available for very long.

Description

2013 QUINTA DO VALLADO  “RESERVA” DOURO, PORTUGAL

From Decanter, “This glorious 2013 is a mind-boggling field blend of 30 different varieties including Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tourigas Franca.  Deep colour and a beautiful black fruit nose leads on palate warming notes of bramble, liquorice, smoke and coffee.  It is full bodied, but not overblown because the tannins are sensuous and ripe.  70% of the wine has been aged in new oak and the rest in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.  It is sensationally accessible now and will only get better.”
From The Wine Spectator, “Elegantly floral, firm and savory, with red plum and berry flavors flanked by notes of dried sage.  Lush midpalate, presenting hints of iodine on the well-structured finish.  Drink now through 2021… 93 Points
From The Wine Enthusiast – 94 Points “Cellar Selection”
