Knockout perfume nose combines blackberry, blueberry, licorice and violet, conveying an impression of sweetness and energy. Savory and gripping on the palate, with a primary sweetness to the fresh black cherry and dark berry flavors. Wonderfully smooth already and very rich and long on the aftertaste. Will rely as much on its sound acidity as on its well-integrated tannins for longevity.

A big, rich and open-textured red, with ripe flavors of dark currant, red plum and boysenberry, matched to lilting mineral and spice notes.

The 2011 Tinto (Quinta do Vesuvio), the flagship estate wine, is a blend of 60% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca and 5% Tinta Amarela, aged in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels of various sizes for 14 months. It comes in at 14.1% alcohol. The price spike between this and the Pombal is considerable, but if you-re up for it, this adds another layer of depth and more expressive fruit, plus better structure. Bright and fresh, it has the hallmarks of the vintage in its well-balanced demeanor. Tightening as it airs, it becomes quite impressive. The only remaining question here is just how good it will be. There is no question at all that it is pretty fine, probably the best yet. There were 14,000 bottles produced, plus some large-format bottles. Drink now-2027. - Mark Squires
