Heiner Lobenberg über:
Character Douro Red 2015


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


Jeb Dunnuck über: Character Douro Red

-- Jeb Dunnuck: One of the few non-Spanish wines in the lineup from Casa del Vino, the 2015 Douro Pintas Character is 100% Touriga Nacional that spent 18 months in oak. Deep ruby-colored with notes of blueberries, violets, spring flowers, and cedarwood, this beauty is ripe and plump on the palate, with a juicy, mouthfilling texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It has plenty of density and enough tannin to keep it drinking nicely for at least 7-8 years, although I love its purity and upfront nature today. 93/100


Parker über: Character Douro Red

-- Parker: The 2015 Pintas Character is a field blend (more than 30 different grapes but mostly Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional) aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Not quite bottled when I first saw it, it is now in bottle and in the USA. It is a very different style than the regular Manoella this issue, its 'second wine' competitor (however, this is not a selection of lesser grapes or barrels, just a different terroir), but a big step up as they both show today. This is a great 'Character,' one of the producer's best yet. It has the structure and intensity of an upper-level bottling, plenty of depth and a big, gripping finish. It seems fairly pure and transparent too, for a wine of this type. This still has some developmental questions to answer in the cellar. If it has an issue, it could use more expressive fruit. That may come in time. In the meanwhile, it is very promising and a fine value. 92/100
