Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional 2005
In the heart of the Douro region, a few miles from the historical centre of Régua, Quinta do Vallado spreads along both banks of the Corgo River, right where it meets the Douro. With references dating back to 1716, the Quinta belonged to the legendary D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira and has remained in the family ever since. It is now in its sixth generation.
Fleshy (halfway between carnal and cadaver), rich and very spicy damask rose aromatics, some black bean/vanilla pod among the creamed red berries, a touch of gentian violet and oak-synthesis coffee. Coffee oak and creamed red berry are the drivers of a super-slick and not-too-tight palate. Touriga Nacional that's showy AND interesting as a straight varietal - a rare, beautiful and inexpensive example.
