Dense and concentrated flavors of wild plum meat kirsch and tobacco leaf fill this powerful red with fine-grained tannins on the exuberantly fruity yet balanced finish.

Dense and concentrated flavors of wild plum meat kirsch and tobacco leaf fill this powerful red with fine-grained tannins on the exuberantly fruity yet balanced finish. Mineral notes linger with plenty of chocolate overtones. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 1125 cases made. -KM

The 2007 Touriga Nacional is revisited this issue as part of the vertical presented. Elegant and remarkably graceful, this is an understated wine that doesn't have a lot of "wow" going for it on opening, but its subtle persistence and graceful demeanor make it very charming, to say the least, and the perfect food wine. Showing a hint of an earthy overlay, it has also acquired a little complexity. It is worth extending the drinking window a bit, but I still see little evidence that this will reward long aging. Don't hesitate to dive in--it is pretty much at peak now. Although the vintages aren't quite like that on paper, I think its successor, the 2008 in the vertical this issue, is better. The cork was a touch brittle, but the wine is right where I expected, and showing no oxidative qualities. Looking over all the wines, I don't think Vallado had quite the same, dramatic year in 2007 as some estates did, not that the wines are bad by any means. - Mark Squires
