Po de Poeira Douro Tinto 2014

External Review:

Jorge Moreira, winemaker at Quinta de la Rosa, makes this wine from his own property in the Pinhão Valley. Pó is a blend of the younger vines, presented in what he describes as “a laid-back style.” Said another way, it’s soft and ready to drink, with generous blue fruit and bitter chocolate tannins that lend the wine mouthwatering richness. A touch of tobacco leaf complexity adds to its charm with the dark meat of chicken.

The 2009 Po de Poeira is a Douro blend of old vines (50%) with younger vines of Sousao, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, aged for 12 months in used oak. This is the best “second” wine made at the winery and one of the best second wines I’ve seen in Douro. It is a year in which it compares well to the flagship “first” wine. This is just one heck of a mouthful this year and it comes in at a terrific price point, too. Full bodied, mouth coating and earthy, speaking of the soil, pure and clean, this is a refined and complex wine with moderate tannins, a complex flavor medley and approachable demeanor. It is not an obvious wine and it does not always show a lot of concentration, but it always shows complex flavors and significant grip on the finish. I finally — with extended aeration — saw the fruit blossom, too. This is just lovely. There were a mere 250 cases imported of 3,000 produced. Grab it if you see it. Drink now–2019.
