Quinta dos Avidagos 2011 Avidagos Red (Douro) Review
June 10, 2019
This is a ripe, soft and generous wine. It has a soft, round texture that gives a soft aftertaste. The wood aging is in the background, giving an easy-drinking character.
It’s rare to find a single-vineyard white wine now, but in 2014 it’s a rarity. This old-vine blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache is a big, meaty wine with a lot of sweet-tasting tannins. It’s full bodied and richly textured, with a heart of caramel, dark chocolate and dark fruit at its core. The combination is ripe and rich, but balanced with an edge of acidity.
Aromas of vanilla and coconut come together in the glass. The palate is full-bodied with a long, smooth finish. This is well balanced and a good entry point for the wine to open.
The aromas are fresh, with a touch of mineral and lemon and grapefruit. The palate is fresh, with flavors of lemon, white grapefruit and a tangy tang of acidity. It’s a clean and fresh wine, brightened with acidity and ready to drink now.
This is a soft, creamy wine with a good balance of acidity from its mineral texture, sweet red fruits and wood flavors. It is ready to drink now, although the fruitiness will improve as it opens.
The white wine is a soft, rounded wine that is ready to drink. It has a smooth texture and ripe red fruit flavors. It is a full-bodied wine that is ready to drink.
