Princesa, Douro DOC
The Wine Advocate
A bigger and more powerful wine than the regular 2016 (although that had two years more in the bottle), this is fairly intense and less evolved. It maintains many of the other themes, including reasonable mid-palate finesse (although the 2016 wins there), good structure and perhaps a high-toned hint, although not really an issue here. (I'm wondering if perhaps there is something in the grape blend producing that.) Overall, this is very well crafted with a refined feel.
