Tasting Notes
The 2011 Monte Cascas Vinha da Carpanha is a blend of 60% Jaen (from 80-year-old vines) and 40% Touriga Nacional (from 60-year-old vines) aged for 24 months in used French oak. This late-released blend shows cream and vanilla, the oak still a bit too prominent. Underneath, though, there is only good news. This is beautifully focused, showing all of that Dão elegance in the mid-palate. Underneath the wood, there is also fine red fruit and some grip on the finish. If it can ever pull in more of the woody nuances, it would be even nicer, but it is pretty impressive now in any event. Reasonably harmonious, thanks to the late release, this can be drunk now. The bigger question is whether and when it will start to substitute complexity for cream and vanilla. Give it some air and it will show better. I came to like this a lot eventually - it is pretty delicious. If you are not at all oak-tolerant, you may not be quite as happy. Drink Date: 2016-2030. Score - 92. (Mark Squires, robertpark
