About

96

This vineyard in the Douro Superior is used as part of the blend for the legendary Barca Velha. In other years, it shows its qualities as a single-vineyard wine. This wine is very fine, rich with black fruits and strongly tannic, it is packed with fruitiness, layers of wood aging and crisp black-currant acidity at the end. Drink the wine from 2023.

94 Wine Spectator

An inky, concentrated red that offers a well-balanced profile of black currant and boysenberry fruit, detailed with slate, dried herb and black pepper elements. This red is powerful but restrained, showing black olive and bitter chocolate notes on the finish.

94 Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Quinta da Leda is a blend of 50% Touriga Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional and 15% each of Tinto Cão and Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in an equal mixture of new and used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Like so many wines in this vintage, this has bold flavors, freshness and a long finish. The structure is beautiful. It is remarkably elegant overall, but don't forget that power on the finish. This is stunning at times, although unevolved. It looks like a gorgeous Leda, a fine food wine and something that can develop as well.
