The 2007 TINTO is a Douro blend. It is another fine andldquo;regularandrdquo; Tinto in this very consistent 2007 vintage. This relatively low priced Tinto has a hidden advantage in that a significant portion of its blend (27% this year) is an old vines field blend from 70 year old vines. The young vines portion (defined as 15 years old, which is fine for most people) includes Touriga Franca (25%), Tinta Roriz (20%), Touriga Nacional (20%), Tinta Amarela (5%) and Sousao (3%). Although it does not show a lot of mid-palate depth, noting that the wines from this estate are always on the more elegant side, it has fine structure and complexity, a certain earthy nuance and some brightness. It is gripping on the finish and should develop a medley of flavors as it ages. It is yet another in the string of regular or second wines in this vintage that perform particularly well at excellent price points. Drink nowandndash;2017.

Nice concentration and intensity to this full-bodied, red table wine, with an alluring aroma of roasted meat and spice. Rich blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors are deftly balanced and linger on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

This powerful and refined red delivers concentrated flavors of plum, dried cherry and spice. Offers a fine texture, with plenty of savory herbal notes, followed by a long, olive- and smoke-filled finish. Drink now through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

All black smoke up front, then concentrated black fruit comes on strong in the end. This is a lean and ripe Baixo Corgo wine, with a squeal of acidity to place it with roast rabbit or duck.

Ample, perhaps even formidable (certainly for a $20 wine), this has a beautiful tactile feel to the fruit. Itrsquo;s as plump and sweet as a perfectly ripe red plum, the tannins reserved and elegant, expressed in the soft mode of pencil lead and cedar shavings. Smooth and ready to enjoy, this would make a luscious accompaniment to grilled lamb.

The 2007 TINTO is a Douro blend. It is another fine ldquo;regularrdquo; Tinto in this very consistent 2007 vintage.
