Love a good Touriga
@klezman Yes, but is it a good one. Inquiring minds want to know.
Are you guys ever going to come down here and visit us SoCal folks?
Well, as far as the reviews mentioned above I’m pretty confident the 92 point review from Wine Enthusiast is for the 2017 version of this wine and the Gold Medal from Mundus Vini is for the 2016, neither for this 2015. That seems to be confirmed on the importer website, Elixir Wine Group, which states under press and points:
2016 – Gold medal, Mundus Vini
2017 – 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
However, tastings.com / Beverage Testing Unit says of the 2015:
89 points. Silver Medal. Highly Recommended. $24.99
Medium violet color. Aromas and flavors of raspberry vinaigrette, black plum, balsamic, and leather with a supple, lively, dry medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-long finish with accents of fresh soil with medium, drying tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A rich and balanced red that can stand on its own.
@kaolis tastings.com review relatively recent, 3/5/21
and…upon further review (pun intended?) Mundus Vini (who?) did give a silver medal to this 2015. Tasting was summer 2018. No notes, but here is the flavor profile they gave to this wine:
@kaolis A 6 on the Beerenfruchte scale? In for two cases! /s
Taking a flyer on this one. It got decent reviews & tasting notes on https://www.vivino.com/US/en/pt-quinta-da-plansel-dorina-lindemann-limited-edition-touriga-nacional-touriga-franca/w/1188238?year=2015 FWIW.
@gemeinschaft79 that review is for a special edition which this does not appear to be. I couldn’t find anything for the non special edition 2015. Waiting for a rat.
@mattig88 Not sure we are going to get a rat on a 24 hour sale. Hope we do though!
@gemeinschaft79 @mattig88 Also rare when they are import offers, but for a flyer like this generally CM does a good job trying to get rats.
I think I will be producing a dry Touriga next year from the same vineyard we get our Forte from. So, I’m in. Want to better familiarize myself with the original version.
@ScottHarveyWine Great! Can’t wait to see more of your wine as it’s an auto buy for me;)
@ScottHarveyWine btw: recently had the current InZin vintage - Excellent as always - maybe even a little more balanced than usual. and … I realized I have at least two vintages of Barbera - thinking I will do a mini-vertical to see the differences of ageing.
@finewiner Just got off the phone with the Touriga Grower and he doesn’t have any left to sell. I did contract for 10 tons of Vermentino for 10 years. So, in the future we’ll have some of that for you all.
@woopdedoo Yes, the current InZinerator was produced a little more dryer than previous vintages. I like it better that way.
@ScottHarveyWine Nice! Can’t wait for ANY offerings you put up soon:)
@finewiner @ScottHarveyWine Yes, love Vermentino. How long do we have to wait?
@ScottHarveyWine Would be interesting to have some folks return to this thread and exchange some thoughts/views with you after trying it.
In for a case. Happy to split if anyone Northern Indiana/SW Michigan has an interest.
Very late Lab Rat (so sorry).
Husband and I were lucky to receive this bottle earlier this week. This is a new one for us and we had no idea what to expect.
First thing I noticed was the color. It’s a beautiful deep ruby.
Nose: not quite ripe blackberry (a familiar smell here in W. Washington), plum, a bit of green apple and a tiny hint of oak.
Mouth feel is pleasant and smooth
Taste was a hint of spice but more toward the fruity side. It was a bit on the sweet side for my tastes but husband quite liked it. Not too much of a finish.
It’s balanced and I can tell well made.
How much more are you saving by buying a full case?

This is quite tasty and well knit. Wish I had ordered more!
