Luis Pato Colheita Seleccionada 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% Baga, 30% Touriga Nacional Deep, leathery and subtly spicy with notes of white pepper and cardamom on the nose, this gains layers of complexity with air running the gamut from pressed flowers to vegemite, peppercorn to sweet pipe tobacco. A bit firm in the mouth, though without the explosive acids Baga sometimes have. Still this is bright and superbly balanced with mineral framed slightly jammy red currant and raspberry fruit on the alate. Hints of tea and dried flowers add detail and the tannins, firm but fully ripe, keep everything in their place. This is an impressive wine, definitely something that can age well for probably up to a decade, there finish is bright and edgy with slightly spicy red fruits that show excellent persistence. The violets and blue fruits of Touriga emerge with air, though the do play second fiddle to Baga’s bright, rusty red flavors. What a buy. 89pts
