Winemaker: "In 2006 our Grande Reserva isa blend of 50% Touriga Nacional, 35% Tinta Roriz and 15% Touriga Franca. The grapes were hand-picked between the 15th and 25th September and fermentation in stainless steel followed at a controlled temperature between 26 and 28ºC.
The wine was then aged for 14 months in new french oak barriques where it attained dark cherry, blackberry and red plum aromas and flavors.
We produced 16.071 bottles and 1.256 magnums."

#180, Dec 2008, Mark Squires: "The 2006 GRANDE RESERVA seems full in the mouth on first attack. It has an average finish, not bad for the vintage. As with its more modestly priced siblings reviewed this issue, it has a bit more power than a lot of 2006s, and the question is really its balance. It is tight and a bit astringent at the moment. I tried it again on Day 2. The mid-palate had thinned, but the fruit was still alive and rather tasty. The tannins were still a bit too aggressive in light of the mid-palate depth. This may improve with some cellaring, but it is a pretty good effort for a 2006. Drink 2010-2017."
