Dow Porto Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira

Refined. Elegant. This has great style. Chocolate and smoke. Damsons. This has great purity. Beautiful weight and texture. Stunning finesse here. Wonderful balance. Superb, ripe tannins coated in a seamless layer of fruit. Great potential.

Quinta da Senhora de Ribeira: situated on the north bank at the site of an ancient river crossing, the name (which translates as The Lady of the River) refers to a small chapel at which travellers would pause to pray for a safe crossing and journey. Due to financial difficulties the estate was sold in the mid-20th century, but acquired once more by the Symingtons in 1998. The vineyard is almost entirely terraced, and covers 42 hectares, of which 21 hectares are planted to vines. The average age is over 25 years, and in the hot and typically dry climate yields are low. The fruit is harvested by hand, and vinified following part treading by foot in granite lagares, and part by robotic lagares. As with Bomfim, some of the wine here may be bottled separately as a single quinta wine in non-declared years.

Sweet plum with a bit of spice flavoring, definitely one of the best I've tried.
