Quinta dos Avidagos 2011 Avidagos Red (Douro) Review

  • 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.
