Mary Taylor - Filipe Ferreira Douro Tinto 2021
Mary Taylor Description
"This blend brings together the aromatic intensity of Touriga Nacional, sophisticated delicacy of Tinta Roriz (better known in Spain as Tempranillo), and the structure and elegance of Touriga Franca. Fresh red fruits on the nose persist through the palate, announcing a young, energetic wine with swirling, well-integrated tannins and a lovely, long finish." - Mary Taylor, Importer

The 2021 Douro Tinto from Filipe Ferreira is crafted from a cépages of sixty percent Touriga Nacional, twenty-five percent Tinta Roriz and fifteen percent Touriga Franca. The wine comes in at 13.5 percent octane this year, which is nicely measured for the Douro. The bouquet is deep, black fruity and complex, wafting from the glass in a mix of dark berries, cassis, saddle leather, cigar wrapper, dark soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, focused 47 and full, with superb depth at the core, excellent soil signature and grip, ripe tannins and lovely balance on the long and complex finish. The lack of new oak here is quite refreshing and fairly rare for most dry reds from the Douro these days. Like all of Mary Taylor’s producers, this is another simply outstanding value! 2028-2065+.” John Gilman with View From the Cellar
