Tasting Notes

The 2011 Quinta da Leda (Casa Ferreirinha) is another fine Leda - not surprising in a terrific vintage, because they've been pretty fine in general for awhile. It is primarily a Touriga Franca/Touriga Nacional blend (45-40), with Tinta Roriz filling out the rest, all aged for 18 months in French oak, only 50% new. If it lacks the flashy notes of the 2009, it seems just as elegant as the 2010, but perhaps even better-balanced and more concentrated. This will one day be more expressive. At the moment, it is tight, a bit tannic and oak-tinged. Its graceful demeanor and tightly wound feel portend a big winner when this begins to open up and develop some complexity. Come back in 3-5 years for better results. It is on the short list for the best of the recent string of winners. There were approximately 33,700 bottles produced. Drink 2016-2033.
