Quinta dos Quatro Ventos Reserva 2007 / 750 ml.

Item#: 74053

RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Dec 2011
The 2007 Reserva (Quinta Dos Quatro Ventos) is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz aged for 12 months in a mixture of French and Russian oak. With a fair hit of oak — too much frankly — this wine nonetheless survives, it has many merits that increasingly come to the fore. It is nicely constructed, suave, with moderately ripe tannins, a reasonable finish and fine balance. As it sat in the glass, the wine evolved in a sensual manner, its texture caressing the palate and the moderately ripe tannins providing some grip and intensity without significant astringency. I really came to appreciate this as it aired out — but I always had to wince a little at the flavor imposed by the oak treatment. After holding it open awhile, it seemed like there was a pretty good chance this would come together and absorb some of that oak. As it aired out, it also acquired some hints of game. There were 20,766 bottles produced. Drink now–2018.

This wine’s texture is cushioned by oak aging, a smooth, thickly fruited red with honeyed black richness. It’s simple and oaky, an easy match for grilled steak.

Where It's From

Appellation / Douro

View more wines from Douro

Located in northwest Portugal, The Douro region follows the path of the Douro river. It's home to Portugal's most prized export, port wines, as well as a blossoming selection of world-class table wines. Typical red grapes used in Douro are Touriga Nacional (which produces tannic, dark red wines) and Tempranillo (under the name Tinta Roriz). The steep slopes of the Douro River Valley make it difficult to farm, but the resulting wines are worth all the effort.

Country / Portugal

View more wines from Portugal

Portugal is most famous (and justifiably so) for its Port wines, fortified wines that are typically sweet and often served with dessert. Port wines come in many styles such as Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, etc, and are classified by how they were produced.

Besides Port, however, Portugal is also one of the fastest-rising wine countries in the world (as far as quality and production) when it comes to table wines. You'll find some unbelievable values in Portuguese table wines, with grapes like Touriga Nacional at the forefront.
