Quinta da Viçosa 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  13292

The 2015 T - M (Quinta da Viçosa), the single-quinta blend that varies every year, is an equal blend of Touriga Nacional and Merlot aged for 12 months in new French oak. It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. The last 'T-M' version of this brand was the 2003. Things have changed a bit. From this vintage on, this is a 'bio' vineyard - meaning it is organic but not yet listed as such. When last seen, this was in great form and looked superb. I especially love the way it has become more expressive, with a juicy finish and a bright feel. It is equally powerful and much more fun to drink now given its development. Keep cellaring it for another couple of years, although you can approach it now. It will continue to evolve well for more than another decade and hold well for a while after that. Drink Date: 2019-2035. Score - 94. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Aug. 31, 2018)
