Ripe and sumptuous, this is a richly tannic wine, impressive for its weight and power. It has a very dry core, hard and solid at present, while the fruit is concentrated ripe berries and plums. This seems like it will age for decades. (11/1/2013) -96

2011 Wine & Soul Pintas
A Proprietary Blend Dry Red Table wine from Portugal, Douro, Portugal
Review by Mark Squires
eRobertParker.com # 210 (Dec 2013)
Rating: 94
Drink 2015 - 2026
Cost: $95
The 2011 Pintas, the original flagship of the winery, is an old vines field blend aged in French oak (only 70% new; 30% second pass) for 20 months. As has become the pattern, this shows more depth than its more elegant new sibling (the Manoella Old Vines also reviewed this issue), but this year it is also a very bright and relatively (it is not Manoella!) elegant vintage in its own right. This is a vintage in which the wine should excel, and does. It is likely to be on the short list as a contender for the best Pintas yet, but it is too tight and unevolved at the moment, a bit hard to read (a comment that is true for many 2011s at the moment). So, lets be conservative just now and leave that conversation for a few years hence. In the meanwhile, it will soon be bursting with flavor. It is beautifully constructed, with crisp persistence on the finish and the promise of future development to come. It should come into better balance in time and it showed dramatic improvement the next day, still tightly wound after being open for a couple of hours on Day 2, but very focused and beautifully constructed. There were 5,900 750ml bottles produced, along with some large format bottles. Drink 2015-2026. Importer: Winebow, Inc., Montvale, NJ; tel. (201) 445-0620

2011 Wine & Soul Pintas Vintage Port
Winery: Wine & Soul
Style: Fortified
Varietal: Port Blend
Region: Portugal
By Stephen Tanzer
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 14
Saturated dark ruby. Kirsch, mint and spices on the very primary nose and palate. Concentrated and sweet, offering lovely black cherry intensity, complicating notes of violet and licorice, and harmonious framing acidity. This savory, energetic wine finishes with fairly easygoing, dusty tannins and noteworthy persistence. 89 Points

Pintas Vintage Porto 2011
 
Company
Established in 2001 by Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges, both winemakers and couple, that have been investing and aquiring old vineyards and properties in Binhao Valley. “Our goal is to create wines that express all the character of the traditional vineyards and varieties from Douro Valley. Balanced wines between concentration, complexity and elegance."
 
Vinification
The harvest was planned for the last week of September in perfect weather conditions. All grapes previously selected and non de-stemmed were foot trodden in stone lagares. The aging was developed in a old Port Tonel during 19 months, after which the wine was bottled.

Tasting Notes
2011 is a classic vintage year, the wet and cold winter preceding the harvest permitted the vines to have great reserves of ground water for the hot and dry summer. The crop ripened very well with great balance, showing beautiful pure fresh fruit, intense aromatic expression and firm and beautiful tannins that will ensure longevity.
