Tasting Notes
The 2007 GARRAFEIRA QUINTA DA FALORCA 'OLD VINES' is gorgeous. It is a fine representation of the region. Where once the word 'Garrafeira' (which simply indicates holding the wine back in bottle a specified time for late release) had considerable cachet, indicating something special, it is not much of a guarantor of quality these days - except where individual wineries still intend it to be special, as here. This is likely the best wine I've had from Falorca. I'm still being a bit conservative with it given its pure power, but it most certainly will improve further in the cellar over the next several years. Sweet and delicious, yet with fine structure and a bit of a hard edge, this has precision and focus, lovely mouthfeel and a long life ahead. Falorca certainly had a fine 2007 vintage from everything I've seen. This looks like a star - but don't buy it unless you have some patience and a cellar. I suspect it will not be at peak until around 2020. This was scheduled to be release
