Quinta do Vallado

Douro Valley

Vallado Touriga Nacional 2015


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.
