Heiner Lobenberg über:
Character Douro Red 2019

94+
/100

Lobenberg: Character ist der Zweitwein von Pintas. Die Cuvée entsteht, indem man die sehr kraftvollen, urwüchsigen, wilden und etwas »unzivilisierten« Fässer aus dem Erstwein auskoppelt. Dadurch haben wir hier satte Power im Glas. UND geniale Frische eines Mega-Jahres, die Spannung zwischen Frische, Reife und Power war nie so hoch! Man erprobt in diesem Wein das Potenzial jüngerer Reben, weil diese Rebberge eventuell demnächst Teil von Pintas werden sollen. Dieser Wein ist ein tolles, würziges Trinkerlebnis, satte rote, schwarze und sogar blaue Frucht, dickes rundes Tannin, langer, sehr würziger Nachhall. Eben ein Wein mit besonderem Charakter! 94+/100

Parker über: Character Douro Red

-- Parker: The 2019 Pintas Character is a field blend (over 30 grapes, but the majority are Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional) from old vines aged for 18 months in 90% used French oak. It comes in at 14.6% alcohol. As always, the Pintas Character is not quite as powerful or as concentrated as its big brother, Pintas, but this easygoing red has more going on than seems apparent on first pour. Coming back to this after half an hour helped a lot. At that point, it showed off its structure. It features ripe tannins but a firm finish. Then, the fruit also evolved, becoming very expressive. Both approachable and serious, this year's version of Character should age pretty well. It is drinking decently now, but it can still improve over the next few years. It does need to demonstrate it can do that, but it's so appealing today that it's worth leaning up for the moment. 92/100

Jancis Robinson über: Character Douro Red

-- Jancis Robinson: Deep cherry red. Intense aroma of pure, rocky black fruit, more savoury aroma than in the Quinta da Manoella wines. There's more obvious oak here but it has enhanced the savoury, almost charry character of the wine rather than adding oak-derived sweetness. Firmly structured by the tannins, compact, dry, mouth-wateringly fresh, with depth of fruit and finesse even though it is still so embryonic. 17+/20
