    The 2017 Reserva (Quinta dos Aciprestes), in bottle for a month or so when seen, is a 60/40 blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Compared to the regular Tinto, this adds some generosity, but it is still tightly wound and beautifully structured. Never jammy, while showing fine fruit and concentration, this is built to age. Refined, round, but very serious and carefully crafted, this is pretty terrific. It's an even better value. The Grande Reserva doubles the price and is better, but it might not add enough extra to justify that doubled price. They will separate more as they age, but bargain hunters take note in the meanwhile. You can drink it now, but it will be better in a few years. Drink date: 2020-2037. Score - 92.
