Mark Squires - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2011 Tinto Quinta da Manoella is 60% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz and 5% Tinta Francisca, all aged in two-year old French barriques for 16 months. This is a lovely regular Tinto from this property, probably the best yet. Graceful, but surprisingly powerful at the moment, it has more persistence than seems apparent at first, plus fine aromatics. This property simply seems to lend itself to elegance, but this has stuff going on. Bright and penetrating, if not very deep or obvious, it should drink very nicely. I suspect the tannins will fall off fairly quickly here and it will seem much more straightforward in time. It is not overly concentrated in the mid-palate. For the moment, it still has room to improve in the cellar, not yet being at peak. In this generally pricey lineup, this is the bargain point. Drink now-2021. "

Product Description:

Wine:
"Beautiful purple color with fresh notes of raspberry, blackberry and spices. On the palate, this wine shows round and velvety tannins, good concentration, and a long finish.

Manoella Tinto is a blend of 60% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz, and 5% Tinta Francisca the from Quinta da Manoella vineyard. The grapes are fermented for 8 days at low temperatures and then foot-trodden in open granite lagares. The wine is aged for 16 months in used French barriques." - Importer

Winery:
"Located in the heart of the Douro Valley, Portugal’s best-known wine region, Wine & Soul spans several picturesque vineyards. This innovative yet rustic winery was founded nearly 10 years ago by Jorge Serôdio Borges and his wife Sandra Tavares da Silva, both of whom wished to channel their extensive experience into a winery that would showcase the traditional varieties and terroir of the Douro Valley on an international level." - Importer
