Quinta Do Portal Touriga Nacional Douro 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows lots of wood spice on the nose with a huge nutmeg note, lots of smoke and overt oak. Hints of violets and candied dark fruit, smoke along with some fresh berry notes peak through the blanket of oak but never quite really make it to the top.In the mouth there’s a too much oak and sweetness here for this rather medium bodied wine that shows soft tannins and good acids that help the rather rich blackberry fruit to fan out on the backend before fading away on the plummy, toasty sticky two-step finish, A lighter wine with wood and sweetness layered on rather heavily, which may make it appealing to a braod audience but it’s not well balanced. 84pts
