Casa dos Zagalos Reserva 2013

16, 5 pts Revista de Vinhos - Garnet colour, almost black. Aroma with red fruits (blackcurrant much mostly) but strong and which notes a little alcohol. Red fruit, some wood and smokehouse something aggressive. Consistent and well-written must still wait a little longer to open.

Casa dos Zagalos Reserva 2013

Peaceful wooded gardens, pergolas, pools and other adornments of its period, characterize the estate's elegant Eighteenth Century architecture. For many years, the Quinta belonged to the Zagalo family, serving as a holiday home. It was forcibly expropriated following the 1974 revolution which saw the overthrow of Portugal's right-wing dictatorship. The house and estate fell into disrepair and so after returning to its rightful owners in 1979, they decided to put it up for sale. Miguel Louro, inspired by the potential it held and a love of country living stepped up and bought Quinta do Mouro. After some challenging years exploring different farming activities such as the rearing of sheep and other animals, which never seemed to be sustainable, Miguel decided to plant a vineyard and produce his own wine.

I bought it because it was recommended to me.
A really tasteful wine of red ruby colour. Strong aromas of nuts. Quite clear presence of plum in the mouth.
