José Maria da Fonseca Red Blend Setúbal Touriga Nacional & Syrah Domingos 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A blend of Touriga Nacional (59%) and Syrah (41%) Oaky on the nose and rather toasty with very earthy, clay like soil tones, hints of tobacco and a sweet almond top note. Rich and round on entry and a bit dense on the palate, this shows some sweetness behind the flavors of blackberries, dried thyme and chocolate. There are some dry tannins on the palate and they clip the finish a bit though a touch of heat does also show on the finish. nose. A bit new world styled, chunky and a bit anonymous. 87pts
