The Casa Ferreirinha Quinta da Leda 2015 has a deep ruby in colour, this wine has complex and intense aromas of black fruits, with spicy hints of black pepper and cloves. There are balsamic hints and subtle menthol notes with very well-integrated oak. On the palate, it has fine tannins, with a well-developed acidity resulting in a long finish.
The 2015 Quinta da Leda is a blend of 50% Touriga Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional and 15% each of Tinto Cão and Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in an equal mixture of new and used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Like so many wines in this vintage, this has bold flavors, freshness and a long finish. The structure is beautiful. It is remarkably elegant overall, but don’t forget that power on the finish. This is stunning at times, although unevolved. It looks like a gorgeous Leda, a fine food wine and something that can develop as well.
