Quinta da Invejosa tinto 2003, D.O. Palmela
very deep and dark red (no purple).
at first a bit restrained, earthy, phenolic, with many nuances of semi
hidden fruit, spices, herbs, warm and concentrated, compact, with
impressions of vanilla, some cream, depth, some complexity, a bit
Burgundy like, great potential, not a sexy or modern, but more
classical, warm and compact style. Intriguing nose inviting you to
explore the many layers of aromas.
powerful, dense, compact, but also warm and ripe, even some elegance,
with lots of extract, strong mid-palate with intense minerals,
earthiness, smoke, spices obvious wood (vanilla) and beautiful
secondary and tertiary fruit, serious, classy, mature style with
still some potential, excellent balance.
very long, intense, fanning-out, with good, well integrated tannins, many impressions of smoke, vanilla, fruit, minerals, iodine, serious and classy.
An intense warm, compact, dense and classy wine, has many earthy, spicy
nuances, beautiful fruit, minerals, great mid-palate, excellent
balance, perfectly integrated oak, ripe and strong tannins, not sexy,
but more classic in style, interesting tension between warm + ripe
and intense + austere, already mature, but still potential left. - Can be drunk now, will
up to 2011, maybe a bit longer.
- There is Castelão
(Periquita) and Cabernet sauvignon in this wine, so you would not
expect hints of Burgundy. I believe it is the terroir that gives this
wine its earthy Burgundy-like character, the Cabernet contributes its
strong structure to the blend, and also I suspect the austerity
and great subtle tertiary fruit. The Portuguese grape supplies the rich
mid-palate and warm touch to the wine. A careful vinification and
intelligent maturation on wood result withe the high quality grapes
into this very good wine. Do not look for oppulence or an easy, sexy
style, this wine is serious about quality. Is inviting you to explore
all the nuances by teasing the taster by showing only bit by bit ist
beautiful fixed fruit and spicy, earthy nuances, layer after layer.
need not to spend the world on very good wines, you simply have to work
hard to find the affordable ones, or read my comments and evaluations
on winescout.info. The first method certainly is more exciting and
taxing, the second less time consuming, but maybe a bit less exciting.
Very interesting quality/price ratio.
