Reviews and Ratings

RESERVA TINTO /OTHER: The 2015 Reserva is an equal blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, with 20% Tinta Roriz, partly (50%) aged in 20% new French barrels for nine months. It comes in at 14% alcohol. In a way, noting that the vintage years were rather different, this is a replay of the 2016 Little Odisseia, except with a bit better depth and structure. It retains the same elegance and silky feel, now leaning to Burgundy, and the same fresh fruit. The flavors are still vivid but even a little more controlled, no doubt due to the subtle wood impact. This is not a big, fat and powerful Reserva, but it is a wonderfully graceful and tasty one. I was willing to lean up a bit on Little Odisseia. For the moment, this irresistible Reserva deserves the same consideration. It can hold reasonably well, but it isn't likely to develop a lot with extended aging. On the other hand, it drinks rather well now. Drink Date: 2018-2027. Score - 90 (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, June 29, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
