Full bodied and gripping, this nonetheless has fine balance. The power, though, means that this is made to age. It wouldn't be Fojo if it wasn't, but this modern 2013 Fojo (Quinta Do Fojo) is a bit more approachable than some of the old powerhouses and just a little rounder, perhaps a small concession to modern times. Sometimes surprisingly sexy, it is a wine with a lot of upside that simply coats the palate. Tasted again the next day, this was far better. It put on weight, showed even better balance and pulled in some oak. On the third day, it was better still. It seems quite brilliant. In a tricky vintage, this is a very impressive achievement. If it's not my favorite 2013 yet--it may well be--it is certainly going on the short list of contenders for Best of Vintage.
