2020 Quinta Nova Pomares Douro Tinto (40% Tinta Roriz, 35% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional). The regally robed Quinta Nova Pomares Tinto captures the eye with its deep ruby and purple tinted hue. A draught of blackberry, dark cherry, and woodland scents greet the nose. However, it is in the mouth that this wine truly shines as it offers exuberant dark fruit flavors, delicate spice tones, and a delightful hint of forest floor. Sensuous and elegant, yet full of flavor with nary an edge, the 2020 Quinta Nova Pomares Tinto combines the best of Old World Douro with today’s contemporary taste for balanced reds with smooth ripe tannins. The wine’s ripe tannins add structure and vivacity without a mouth searing edge.
