Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 A Boca do Demo has a dark ruby color and subtle nose that is slightly closed and darker, with sweet dark berries, spices, an earthy (slate?) touch and hints of fountain pen ink and leather. It was produced with grapes from 70-year-old Mencía vines on a single plot with slate and granite soils. It fermented with full clusters in a 1,500-liter oak vat and 500-liter barrels, where the wine was kept with the skins for three to five months, and the wine was kept there after pressing until bottling. This is more like a Northern Rhône Syrah in character, a bit meaty and darker than other years. 2,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.
