Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Touriga Nacional Quinta de Saes was aged for 18 months in well-used French barriques and comes in at 13% alcohol. This is meant to be a lighter, more elegant Touriga than Castro's top-level wines. It is from youngish vines (12 years) in the Caniças vineyard. Elegant and light it most certainly is, but it has beautiful aromatics and flavors. Maria Castro says she always has a hint of geraniums from this vineyard. I get more blue fruits and violets (another reason why I like to avoid certain descriptors). Decide for yourself. The structure is modest—you can drink it now—but it has enough to support it well for several years, and it has a fresh feel. While it may well hold a decade, drinking it in the short to mid-term is a good idea. This is a great choice for a house pour. It can't be called a profound Touriga, but it is a great "starter Touriga," if I could put it that way, that gives you a glimpse into what this grape can be, classic in all respects. This is a reasonable value in a wine that is approachable, but with just a bit of distinction."

Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate, August 2018
