Quinta do Sagrado Reserva 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  568774

A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo). The fruit comes from old vines and is trodden by foot in the traditional way, and after fermentation the wine spends 18 months in French oak. It's fairly introverted to start, but with time and air its alluring notions of grilled plum, blueberry and blackberry emerge. Upfront structure and firm tannins define the palate and call for protein-rich foods like grilled beef or hard cheeses. Best through 2026. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2019)
