Tasting Note: The 2008 Tinto (Quinta de Sao Joao) is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca. Just bursting with flavor and possessed of velvety texture and an initial feeling of roundness, this is still another sunny, crisp 2008 from the winery this issue that surprises with its structure--every burst of flavor matched by a burst of tannin and acidity. Its velvety, lush opening moderates a bit with time, but the flavor remains persistent and the structure gives evidence that the wine will develop nicely as it ages. Drink 2013-2020. Score - 91.
