About

95

The 2016 Símbolo is a field blend (mostly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca) from vines ranging from 40 to 60 years in age. It aged for 18 months in new French oak and comes in at 14.4% alcohol. Elegant, refined and fresh, this has fine mid-palate finesse to go with velvety texture and plenty of power. Intense on the finish and very focused, this is just a baby in its development. It throws off dried blue fruits and a little chocolate, but it is relatively closed. Its power and the potential for complexity mean that this should really be held for another couple of years. It will not be released until the fall of 2019, but that won’t allow it to reach its potential or even settle down.
