Quanta Terra Grande Reserva 2005

Quanta Terra Grande Reserva 750ML 2005      
Sku: 14746

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2008)
The 2005 GRANDE RESERVA is a blend of Touriga Franca (15%), Touriga Nacional (65%), Tinta Barroca (18%) and Sousao (2%), aged in French oak for 12 months. Like the regular 2005 Reserva reviewed here, this is suave and supple, with ripe tannins and fine balance. It is lusher, more aromatic (thanks, no doubt, to the high Touriga Nacional component) and it delivers a wave of flavor at the outset. It also expands in the glass and becomes deeper, while the regular Reserva thins a bit. It is a pleasure just smelling this wine, violet aromas wafting to the fore. This in fact seems dominated by the Touriga Nacional, showing plummy flavor nuances on the finish and a touch of herbs. It becomes a real blend only with air and more time. The tannins become more apparent with air, giving the wine the structure necessary to hold gracefully in the cellar for several years. There were 9,000 bottles produced. Drink now-2016.
