"The 2015 Pombal do Vesúvio (Quinta do Vesúvio) is mostly 50% Touriga Nacional and 45% Touriga Franca with a dollop of Tinta Amarela, aged for ten months in French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. This is lighter in style but seems elegant and shows finesse with vivid flavor. It is also wonderfully fresh and lifted with a lingering, delicious finish. It will drink great young and age reasonably well, but I doubt it will truly reward much cellaring. Right now this is all about the gorgeous fruit. We'll see in time if it turns into anything more. There were 2,958 cases produced along with 249 magnums."
