Critic Notes

The 2013 Tinto, the regular Estate bottling, is a 76/24 blend of Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira. It was aged for 36 months in used 5,000-liter tonels of varying ages and comes in at 14.0% alcohol. On first pour, this was unassuming, but with air it fleshed out, showed its power and became impressive. Reasonably concentrated, intense and beautifully structured, this is a bit backwards just now. It also needs time to develop some expression of fruit, which it lacks just now. I also tasted a pour that had been open for 12 hours, and it was like a completely different wine. It developed a darker flavor profile, with beef and chocolate. It seemed expressive. This is an unevolved young pup; just give it some time, though. It looks potentially super, at least in a few years. Then, it will need some reevaluation. This will be released shortly after this article appears. Aug 2018, www.robertparker.com

Introducing 1998 Dom Perignon Plenitude
Not everyone understands Dom Perignon. I drank my first bottle of DP in a jacuzzi overlooking the Caribbean sometime in the late nineties, and this about sums it up for many: bling consumption. But look closer at this wine and it’s so much more than about spraying it around nightclubs or off the back of boats. Get to know DP ...
