Quinta de Lemos

Touriga Nacional 2011

These keep getting better. Was a little musty on pop and pour, but day two it’s all deep, lush, dark fruit with a long prune-y finish. — 15 days ago

Casa de Santar

Reserva Estate Bottled Dão Red Blend 2013

9.0

The oak is quite prominent though not overbearing initially, and subsides gradually to commingle with ripe black fruits, clove, anise, dark chocolate, dried herbs, and slight hint of barnyard. Full body. Savory and lush palate but the fruits feels youthful than the nose suggested. Vivid acidity and still solid tannins. Will continue to get better in the next 5 years also.

This bottle serves a reminder that I need to drink more wines from Portugal, one of my favorite countries to visit.

Quinta de Saes

Dão Touriga Nacional Blend 2017

Nose of cherry, cranberry, violet, smoke, loam, beef jerky, and a slight medicinal phenolic note. Before it got some air, it had a reduced, carbonic impression. Complex.

Note quite as complex on the palate. Label describes it as "juicy" and it is indeed. Sour cherry and violet predominate with some hints of spice. There's a streak of med+ acidity throughout with soft, well integrated tannins.

A superbly elegant, well made wine. You would pay 2-2.5x this price for a Pinot with the same prowess (there's no Pinot Noir in this, but similarly structured). Would have never guessed this was from Portugal in a blind tasting.
