96+ Pts Wine Advocate
The 2015 Vinha do Fojo (Quinta do Fojo) was aged for 23 months in 60% new French barriques and comes in at 14% alcohol. Oh, my. This announces its presence as a wine you'd better account for only after 40 minutes in a glass. Then, it shows off pure power, although not astringency. It has admirable depth too. The opening pour shows some fruit, some oak and some power, but then the power just takes over. It's handled very well, but take note that this is made for a wine lover with a cellar. It will need a few years, at least, of even more aging.
