The 2009 Touriga Nacional, sourced from the winery’s 1994 plantings, was aged in 50% new French oak. A bit too oak tinged in its youth, this nonetheless has gorgeous structure, impeccable balance and fine concentration. It should absorb the oak as it ages. Just holding it in the glass for 90 minutes started to prove that pretty well. Give it a year or two to settle down. I was not as easily convinced by this as by its sunny 2008 predecessor, but ultimately I think they are more or less qualitatively comparable, if somewhat differently styled, this one being bigger. This has a lot to offer, including fine concentration and seductive texture. Vallado has become a player in monovarietal Touriga Nacional. There were 6,916 six-bottle cases produced. Drink now-2020.

Very polished and ripe, with intense mocha and spice aromas and powerful flavors of blackberry, French roast coffee and black olive. The long finish is filled with effusive dark chocolate and Asian spice notes, with hints of toast and cream. Drink now through 2020. 3,458 cases made. –KM Rated #13 in Wine Spectator’s 2012 Top 100
