    The 2013 Terra do Zambujeiro is a blend of 34% Alicante Bouschet, 28% Aragonez, 15% Touriga Nacional, 14% Petit Verdot and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for two years in French oak (40% new). It comes in at 15% alcohol. This is a slightly decadent Terra at first, smooth and rich, packed with flavor and finishing with some power, enough to support the fruit and cut the sweet edge. The oak is a bit too obvious just now, but that will continue to improve gradually. It mostly disappeared after I played with the wine for a few hours. If this starts slowly, it finishes big, filling the mouth and expanding in the glass. Then, it tightens. As the oak receded, the wine also showed a bit more nuance, a touch of beef and some blue fruit. Even if it initially seems that this sexy wine is about the fruit, don't be fooled--the structure is very impressive and that becomes clearer with aeration. In a few hours, it became quite powerful and surprisingly transparent. It closed down a bit. It does have a bit of a hard edge in its youth, but after extended aeration it held together in terms of both alcohol and tannins. This would benefit from another couple of years in the cellar, but it should be roughly approachable when it is released even so, if you must, and if you give it some air. Drink Date: 2018-2031. Score - 93. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2017)
