The 2010 TINTO ?QUINTA DA MANOELLA? is a blend of 60% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz and 5% Tinta Francisca. It is easily the bargain of this lineup. If it does not quite have the focus and depth of the big boys, sometimes it seems not so far behind and it is 1/4th of the price. Despite 18 months in used oak, it seems pure and fresh, a wine that is expressive and flavored by its fruit, not its oak. It does not have the depth of its old vines sibling, but it improves rather than fades in the glass and it has more substance than seemed apparent at first. The fifth taste was more interesting than the first. As graceful as it seemed on opening, it added a layer of depth and power, demonstrating that it has a fine backbone and a crisp, sunny edge. This is completely charming. Manoella is a recent acquisition for Wine & Soul and this regular Tinto is as well. It has little track record, warranting some conservatism. It should hold reasonably well, but its appeal is not really based on its potential to develop in the cellar. It will be early maturing and peak early. Hopefully, it does a little more than that at some point, too, but dive in and have fun. Drink now-2021.

A big, powerful, fruity wine, this is laden with dry tannins as well as blackberry flavor. Dark and concentrated, it has a solid, dense feel with fruits layered with intense wood notes. It needs at least five years to soften and round out.
