Blend of 51% Touriga Franca, 36% Touriga Nacional, and 13% Sousao.
The 2013 LBV comes in with 95 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is another nice one in the Ramos Pinto traditional style this year. It is very fruity, a bit more so than usual, and very approachable. There is a backbone and complexity lurking underneath, but that will require some bottle age. They do age well. Drink it on release (in Portugal, it will be out just before this article appears; in the USA, probably closer to the end of 2017). Tightening nicely as it sits and showing that great fruit all the while, this is another LBV beauty from Ramos Pinto, one of the leaders in traditional LBVs. Preferably, give this at least a few months to settle down, even if it is relatively easy to drink. Wine Spectator – 93
