The 2008 Reserva was aged for approximately 18 months in 30% new French oak from various coopers. Not quite as fleshy as the ‘07 on opening, but crisper, a touch more elegant and even fresher, this tightens faster, too. To be sure, that may be a function of the extra year of youth. They are pretty close in many respects, but this did show its power notably, the first wine in the vertical that I would probably suggest putting aside for a bit. That said, it can be approached easily enough and some aeration made it quite lovely. It is so well-balanced that it will have no difficulty continuing to improve. The ‘07 and ‘08 vintages were radically different years in much of Portugal, but these two iterations are surprisingly close, this more lifted, the 2007 more expressive and fruity, relatively speaking, of course. Drink now-2027.
