Quinta do Popa Douro "Popa TN" Touriga Nacional

Grape: Touriga Nacional
2015 Quinta do Popa Douro "Popa TN" Touriga Nacional....$25.99
Next lowest price on Wine Searcher is $32.00

Created from a single grape variety, Portugal’s most noble Touriga Nacional, Pôpa TN shows off a more modern side of pure Douro.   Full‐bodied and super smooth, the tannins have become softened by oak and by time to deliver a compote‐like concoction, dripping with pruny notes that give way to a surprising floral finish.  Very concentrated from the very low yields from this winery.  Oak treatment: 6 months in new french oak
Sitting alongside one of the most privileged locations on the Douro River, Quinta do Pôpa creates exquisite wines with national grape varieties. Born from nature and tradition, from the harmonious wedding between soil, climate, and the art of man, these noble yet global wines will surprise the palate one sip at a time.
Touriga Nacional:  similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, Touriga Nacional is the noble grape variety of Portugal.  It makes a full bodied red wine than can age for a long time and continue to improve.
