11. Quinta Do Casal Branco Falcoaria Reserva Tejo (2011)

« Prev Next » 11 of 12
A blend of Castelão, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet that spends nine months in new French Oak Coffee bean, ivy, smoky marzipan,and plummy fruit come together on the nose. In the mouth this is very fresh on entry with fine depth to the gorgeous wild berry fruit. Fine grained tannins and a little early wood contribute to the medium bodied mouthfeel here, adding some peppery spice on the backend and noticeable baking spice on the moderately long, plummy finish. This is a touch soft with fuzzy tannins and more dry extract than the Falcoaria Classico bottling. 89pts
