2015 Castro Candaz "A Boca do Demo" Ribeira Sacra

SKU #1322362 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 he 2015 A Boca do Demo comes from a single vineyard in the Chantada zone within Ribeira Sacra. The small plot is walled and terraced, planted with ancient vines of mixed varieties. If wines from the Amandi subzone are similar to the Rhône, this is more like Burgundy: terribly elegant, perfumed, insinuating and all about finesse and nuance. The palate is super refined, with great freshness and the acidity better integrated than the other reds. It feels like an improvement over the first vintage of 2013 (it was not produced in 2014). With time there is a flinty character in the glass. 3,000 bottles produced. There was only one red wine bottled in 2014, so I tasted the range of 2015s. There were no whites, but there is one new red.  (8/2017)
