2012 Quinta do Popa Douro

SKU #1241845 Jancis Robinson

 Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, including 20% old vines. Winemakers Luis Pato and Francisco Montenegro. Darkish cherry. Lightly spiced and peppery dark, blackberry fruit, smells a little dusty, tastes dry and fresh with fine dark fruit. Cool, dry and pure-fruited. Mouthwatering and harmonious, lightish on the mid palate – making it very drinkable and with the tannins suggesting it would be a great supper wine.  (12/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Tinto "Popa", with just Pôpa on the front, is a blend of Tinta Roriz (35%), Touriga Nacional (25%), Touriga Franca (20%) and an Old Vines field blend (20%). The Old Vines component was aged for six months in French Oak (a mixture of second- and third-use). This is a very nice value. Solid and showing good depth for the vintage and this level, it is also nicely structured with well-integrated tannins, but a real backbone. This bargain should drink well for most of the next decade or so. (MS)  (8/2015)

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
