Ripe and ready. this is simply terrific. Apparently it got 96 points from Spectator which I completely agree with. There is so much going on that I almost can't handle or describe it. Just a big berry explosion of goodness. Long delicious finish.

Once part of Doña Antonia de Ferreira’s extensive holdings in Douro, the Quinta do Vallado is still in the hands of her descendents. The property rises above the confluence of the Douro and Corgo rivers, just east of Regua, the wine produced by another Ferreira descendent, Francisco Olazabal, whose family runs the Quinta do Vale Meão. Olazabal’s hand is apparent in the wine, which could stand in for a great vintage of Vale Meão in its brilliant richness and acidity. The schist hillsides come through in powerful minerality, the glints of red fruit and black stone reflecting across a vast expanse of flavor. The texture is supple; the heady spice and floral finish last for minutes. This is destined to be a classic, with the potential to develop for a decade or more.

The 2007 RESERVA is an old vines (80–90 years) Douro field blend (70%), and younger vines (15 years) Touriga Nacional (30%). This adds a layer of depth — and some oak — as compared to the regular 2007 Tinto reviewed this issue. Smooth and rounded on the edges, it seems potentially exceptional, as long as the oak integrates better with a year or two in the cellar. As it stands now, I rather enjoyed the regular Tinto reviewed this issue more — a word to the wise for bargain hunters. I don’t think that will be the answer in five years, though, even though this should be approachable young. The tannins are rather ripe. Typical of this estate’s elegant wines, this should turn into a graceful and harmonious wine that should be a pleasure to drink. There were 4,113 six-pack cases produced. Drink 2011–2020.

Rich, powerful and finely crafted, with layers of concentrated red plum, currant, blueberry and kirsch flavors. Silky tannins knit it seamlessly together. The elegant and refined finish is filled with mineral, smoke and spice. Drink now through 2016.
