Joined in the Douro by his sister Joana, also a winemaker, the grapes for this wine are sourced from the Cima Corgo, near Pinhão. It is a blend of 55% Touriga Nacional, along with 25% old vine field blend and 20% Sousao. Memorably spicy and concentrated with notes of fig, violet and dark plum. Dense yet complete and finely rendered, offering refined tannins and a smooth creaminess. Stylish and harmonious.

The 2017 Tinto is a 55/20 blend of Touriga Nacional and Sousão with 25% of a field blend from old vines (80+ years), all aged for 12 months in a mixture of stainless steel (50%), new French oak (25%) and neutral oak...   The 2017 Tinto is a 55/20 blend of Touriga Nacional and Sousão with 25% of a field blend from old vines (80+ years), all aged for 12 months in a mixture of stainless steel (50%), new French oak (25%) and neutral oak (25%). It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. Probably the best regular Tinto yet from the producer, this has fine concentration for that level to go with bold flavors—it is delicious—velvety texture and a real backbone. The tannins are ripe, though. This has to age a bit to justify my enthusiasm, but for the moment it seems right on track. - Mark Squires

Violets, wild blackberries, cloves and dried leaves on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Creamy with a floral lift. Drink or hold.
