Jose Maria da Fonseca

Dark ruby color. Aromas of mineral, cassis, sweet fruits and violet. The palate is fruity, smooth with soft tannins. Should be decanted and served with game and cheese.

Wine Enthusiast

Named after winemaker Domingos Soares Franco, this is a serious, intense, wood-aged wine. Along with the new wood flavors, it has rich blackberry fruit and dry tannins. With its firm concentrated structure, this is
one age-worthy wine.

Score: 91. April 01, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Domingos Touriga Nacional / Syrah is 59% Touriga Nacional and 41% Syrah, aged in new French oak for 12 months. In its rather modest price range, it should be a nice deal. Earthy and bright, aromatic and persistent, it does not have a lot of mid-palate concentration, but it does have character and some complexity. Tasty, well-balanced and pleasing, this is absolutely charming if you like that Northern Rhone feel. Drink now-2018.
