Heiner Lobenberg über:
Character Douro Red 2017

93+
/100

Lobenberg: Der Zweitwein von Pintas. Meines Erachtens eine völlig unnötige Auskoppelung eines sehr kraftvollen, urwüchsigen, wilden und etwas unzivilisierten Teils der Fässer. Hier ist satte Power. Ergänzt werden die Pintas-Fässer um Wein aus zugekauften Trauben der besten Freunde von Jorge und Sandra. Diese Rebberge sollen eventuell demnächst zugekauft werden und hier wird das Potenzial erprobt. Ein tolles, würziges Trinkerlebnis, satte rote, schwarze und sogar blaue Frucht, dickes rundes Tannin, langer, sehr würziger Nachhall. 93+/100

Suckling über: Character Douro Red

-- Suckling: Fresh and vivid red with plum and berry character, as well as dried fruit and walnuts. Some bark, too. It’s full-bodied, layered and very structured with firm tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Still tight, but will open with some decanting. Try after two hours. Drink or hold. 93/100

Parker über: Character Douro Red

-- Parker: The 2017 Pintas Character is a field blend from old vines aged for 18 months in 80% used French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Originally seen as a tank sample in Portugal last June, this is now bottled and in the USA. Although for the most part I tended to prefer the 2017s with the Manoellas, here I might pick the 2016 Character. Perhaps that is simply because this is less evolved. In terms of fruit intensity, this seems more concentrated (as with the Manoellas) but a little less complex. While there is that concentration of fruit, making this seem more like the essence of dry fruit, it feels no fuller in the mouth. And yet...as this airs out, it leaves more than a favorable impression. The gorgeous concentration of fruit—even while the wine never becomes jammy—makes me think this will win out in the end. It is just a little shy now. 92/100

Wine Spectator über: Character Douro Red

-- Wine Spectator: A suave, concentrated red, with seamless flavors of steeped blackberry, red plum reduction and espresso. Details of mineral, violet and spice echo on the tannic finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,500 cases made, 300 cases imported. 92/100
