Tasting Notes
The 2016 Contraste Tinto is a field blend mostly (80%) from 40-year-old vines with Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz comprising the last 20% combined (from 60-year-old vines). It was aged for 16 months in used French oak and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. A fine follow-up to the 2015, this might even be a little more concentrated. As always, that's relative as this is a very elegant bottling, not a jammy one. It may not have quite as much zip and zest as the 2015, but these are high-altitude vines. It does pretty well in that regard too. There's a real backbone too, but the tannins are controlled. Just recently bottled, this has plenty of room to improve. It may be one of the best Contraste reds yet, but let's be conservative just now. It will certainly be better next year. Score - 90. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Aug. 31, 2018)
