Even better than the 2015, which might have been the greatest expression of Touriga Nacional I’d ever tasted, the 2016 Touriga Nacional Numero Dois Cumulus Vineyard boasts a knockout bouquet of ripe black fruits, charcoal, bouquet garni, and ground pepper. Rich, full-bodied, layered, and straight-up sexy on the palate, don’t miss a chance to try this singular wine.
The 2016 Número Dois is full of mystery and sheer allure. Mocha, wild cherry, mint, iron and a touch of new oak infuse this opulent red with tremendous nuance. Soft curves and rich, voluptuous fruit add to the wine’s considerable personality. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s intense aromatics and overall nuance. The 2016 is flat out gorgeous. That’s all there is to it. (AG)
Coming entirely from the Krankl’s “Home” vineyard—the Cumulus vineyard—the 2016 Touriga Nacional Numero Dois is a blend of 83% Touriga Nacional, 9% Mourvedre, 5% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah using 54% whole clusters. It spent around 33 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, straight away you know this is no ordinary Touriga, giving up a VERY spicy nose of Sichuan pepper, Chinese five spice, cumin and cardamom with a core of blackberry preserves, redcurrant jelly, bouquet garni, dusty soil, lavender, leather and tobacco. Full-bodied with a taut, tightly wound frame of chewy tannins, it is jam-packed with expressive layers, finishing very long with lingering fragrant earthy hints. Just 100 cases were made. (LPB)
