(This tasting followed a quick, 10-minute decant) Ruby in color, inviting on the nose with cherries, deep, red & dark fruits, the '07 Barren Ridge Touriga is a great example of both how and why this varietal is spreading across vineyards in Virginia like wildfire. Full bodied and bold on the palate, it brings concentrated blackberry, currant, and a "smokey earthiness" throughout its approach and mid-palate, and finishes with hints of cranberries and even touches of lavender in its texture. While closed in its style, it reminds me of some of the more well-rounded and approachable merlot grown in Washington State in its personality, though certainly composed of its own, "virile" character. Good value for the buck and a great look at what I think may be part of the bright future of Virginia's creative & risk-taking wine making future. 88 points, should we need to break it down in such a fashion.
