The 2013 Quinta do Passadouro Tinto is sourced from the schistous Passadouro and Sibia vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro.

Varietal Composition: 40 Touriga Nacional, 30 Tinta Roriz, 30 Touriga Franca
Appellation: Douro DOC
Aging: 18 months in French barriques, 20 percent new

93 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"From a selection of old vines, this grand wine is rich and firmly structured. With dark tannins and powerful black plum fruit flavors, it is concentrated and with considerable aging potential. The wine is still young, packed with tannins and will not be ready to drink until 2019."

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Velvety in texture and well-spiced, with ripe dark fruit flavors that are matched to engaging forest floor and cedary notes. Cocoa powder and candied plum details show on the refined finish."

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2013 Tinto is a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz and 30% Touriga Franca, aged for 18 months in an 80/20 mixture of used and new French barriques. Adding some weight and structure to the Passa, this lacks that wine's fruity finish, but it is better balanced and a bit more on the serious side with some extra grip on the finish. If at first they seemed about even, eventually this easily pulled into the lead. With an extra hour of air, this kept getting better. That sealed the deal. It's a very nice Tinto….graceful, tasty and harmonious. It will be interesting to see how this ages. It may yet have a hidden layer or two to show us. In the meanwhile, don't hesitate to dive in."
