Quinta do Vale das Escadinhas Quinta da Falorca Garrafeira Dão Red Blend 2009

$49.95

...This old vines blend (80 years old, from Esmoitada vineyard) is remarkable. It seems like a very fine Burgundy, something with finesse, focus and gorgeous craftsmanship...The elegance of the mid-palate belies the persistence, intensity and focus here. As it airs out, it develops a certain, earthy note underneath that gives it complexity, too... It is a superlative effort in every respect, brilliantly balanced and rather tasty, too... Serve this blind, tell them it is French Grand Cru from an unstated region and watch the accolades pour forth. Then, you can explain why they should be paying more attention to Portugal. This should age beautifully, by the way. Twenty to twenty-five years here seems pretty easy given the structure of this wine... eRobertParker.com
