"The 2016 Branco Vinhas Velhas is a roughly equal blend this year of Bical, Cerceal and Sercialinho, unoaked and coming in at 12.5% alcohol. This simply coats the palate and seems full bodied, rich and very dense this year. So, too, was the 2015, but this might be even deeper. It may not have quite as much of that tightly wound feel and energy as the 2015 did, but they are two fabulous back-to-back values. This, while a little easier to read than the 2015 when I first saw it, does not lack for structure. As it airs and warms, it shows controlled tension on the finish, too. As with the 2015, this will likely show better with a year more in bottle, around the summer of 2018. It should age beautifully, perhaps better than indicated. I suspect the 2015 will eventually win out, when both have shed their baby fat, but at the moment, this shows better. At the pricing provided, there is no way you can go wrong with either. They are both super bargains."
