The 2011 Touriga Nacional is revisited this issue as part of the vertical presented. After seeing them all together, this remains my favorite of the vertical, by a small margin, and also demonstrates the winery's increasing skill with this bottling. It combines finesse, concentration, texture and fine structure. Like many 2011s--and like the Tourigas in this vertical--it is not what you might call a "wow" wine, but its graceful presentation coupled with its lingering finish is hard to resist. It combines the best features of many of its predecessors. It should age well
Wine Spectator - 95 See more...
Finely textured, with pure and powerful flavors of dark currant, black olive, red plum and wild cherry, accented by notes of molten licorice. Latent tannins and vibrant acidity give this a lively mouthfeel, offering a refined finish of chocolate mousse. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases imported.

This is very fine and delicious with plums, berries and hints of dark chocolate. Full body with chewy tannins that turn slightly dry now, but should soften with age.
