2014 Quinta da Falorca Reserva Lagar Dão
They belong to the secret heroes of the international wine world: winemakers such as the quality-seeking Carlos Figueiredo, who esteems his birthplace Dão and the local terroir, but also produces wines at a global level. With his wines, wine lovers find the individuality that is often lost in times of increasing globalization of wine tastes: authentic, traditionally prepared wines with a radiant regional character, made from indigenous grape varieties in a limited edition.
The Reserve Quinta Da Falorca Lagar is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz (and has matured for 18 months in 2nd year and new French oak. This Falorca is also very Burgundian and graceful but also powerful with expressive flavors that continue over time The powerful, almost black deep purple color alone is a grandiose face, the unprecedentedly inviting, intense bouquet tells of wonderful aromas, consisting of ripe plums, black currants, roasting aromas, flowering heather, pine needles, dark chocolate and mocha beans. In the mouth you can taste the same complexity: Excellent tannins, an admirable harmony between the aromas of the barrel and decent fruit The feeling in the mouth is wonderfully dense The finish has an impressive structure with many crowns, typical of the Portuguese grape: Touriga Nacional, which dominates this cuvée.
A wine with such power also needs equal partners at the table. For example a côte de bœuf, a dry aged prime rib or a leg of lamb with many herbs and spices.
