From the Granite-rich Dao region of Portugal, this 100% Touriga Nacional from Quinta da Falorca is exceptional. A wine of controlled power and finesse, leaning a bit toward the Burgundian, this is an incredible wine for showing in a blind tasting. Don't miss.

95 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE:
The 2011 Touriga Nacional Quinta Da Falorca is a blend of Touriga grapes from three plots, two with 40 years of age and the third at ten. It was aged in new French oak for 18 months. The combination of power, finesse and seduction here make this more than a little enticing. To be sure, it is rather unevolved and it needs to pull in a little oak. Even now, though, it is slowly gathering itself. The crisp, flavorful finish, balance and good structure will support this for a couple of decades in all likelihood. It finishes with controlled power and persistent flavor. It is always a wine that leans a bit to the Burgundian and this year is no different.
