This explodes from the glass with very modern aromas of sweet fruit and smoky, almost charred wood but then settles down to reveal a nice smoked meatiness with lots of peppery black fruit edged in gentle notes of cocoa and something vaguely autumnal. In the mouth this is a big wine, again packed with sweet black fruit but with nice bright acids supporting them and a solid layer of tannin adding weight int he mouth. This is not my style of wine but is animpressive showing. 91pts

The Douro seems to offer some of the most exciting dry reds around for very reasonable prices and this wine is a perfect example. Fans of Port will definitely notice the similarities in the nose, the very ripe dark fruit and smokey wood. Palette is rich yet bright with additions of holiday spices, pepper and tea.

Being a big fan of wines from the Douro region I was very excited about this wine. The main problem I had with this wine was that the acid was so intense that the otherwise wonderful flavor notes and strong tannins were overpowered by it. I like some acid in wine, but it was overly so, for my taste. On the nose there were dark fruits, wet earth, and smoke. Tasting revealed deep, dark plum, cigar box with a cocoa finish and a hint of graphite.

One of my favourite wines. The younger brother, so to say, of Quinta do Vale Meão, made with the same expertise and obtaining remarkable results for a fraction of the price of its noble brother.

It's all about the fruit, which is bright, lively and brimming with flavor. It is the second wine of the Quinta do Vale Meão - estate bottled.

Winemaker's Notes:

After being crushed, the grapes are cooled down and trodden by foot during four hours in granite “lagares” and then transferred to small refrigerated stainless steel vinifying vats. Each variety is vinified separately. This wine was matured in second and third year French Allier oak barriques.
