Steven Spurrier, Decanter August 2011 – “…superbly controlled spice and black cherry fruit, tight and elegant, fresh as well as rich, top potential 2019-2049.” 19.5 points
Luís Antunes, Revista de Vinhos, Julho 2011 – “Fruta azul, grafite, chocolate, folhas e flores, reservado no aroma, com tensão e complexidade. Seco e picante, texturado, com taninos firmes e gordos. Fruta azul, grafite, chocolate, folhas e flores, reservado no aroma, com tensão e complexidade. Seco e picante, texturado, com taninos firmes e gordos. Fresco, potente, num registo de elegância e contenção. Final interminável. “ Pontos 19
Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, May 2011 – “Intense, vivid nose is spicy and dense with lovely bright aromatics, as well as some violet florality. The palate is rich and bold with lots of sweetness. Generous, with smooth, intense fruit and firm yet fine-grained tannins. Massive fruit and lovely structure. Brilliant.” 95–97/100
Jancis Robinson, Purple Pages, May 2011 – “Blackish purple. This, unusually, had the headiness of Fonseca 2009 on the nose and seemed more luscious and velvety than the Quinta da Vargellas Vinha Velha on the palate. Very rich, round and thrilling. Dense and pure. A bit of a schoolmaster in terms of straight back and firm structure. Very long, firm and thrilling – surely a long term bet with additional early charm, presumably from the exceptionally hot, dry vintage. “Score 18. Drink 2035-70
Will Lyons, The Wall Street Journal, May 2011 – “Dark black/purple in the glass, the nose is an intense, opulent marriage of spice and dark fruit. On the palate there is real power and again more fruit giving way to a refreshing, long length.”
Richard Mayson, richardmayson.com, May 2011 – “Deep, dark opaque; lovely opulent aromas, refined, scented and very pretty (not often I say this about a wine), in its first bloom of youth; broad, sweet and rich with fine peppery tannins, quite powerful yet gentle at the same time with a lovely sinewy, firm finish. Complete. “Score 18
