The 2010 Reserva “Ciconia” is a blend of Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira, 40% of which was aged in French oak. This bottling has developed into a fairly reliable and nicely priced bargain wine. It always shows somewhat bold flavors, but it has turned the corner into becoming something better structured and balanced — not that it is shy by any means. For a wine in the price category, it’s typically a lot of wine. This year’s version has a sweet oak nuance, nice texture and reasonable structure. It coats the palate and seems moderately sexy, but never out of control. A bit compact, it nonetheless expands well with aeration, seems reasonably fresh and easy, and ultimately drinks nicely, showing more structure with air and a little character, too, belying its initial impression. It is always useful to err on the side of caution in drinking wines like this. If they have a failing, it is that their ageworthiness is in question. Drink now–2014.

Lots of sweet cherry flavors behind the supple dried berry and savory herb notes. A touch of minerality on the finish. Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira. Drink now. 9,590 cases made.
