The 2009 PV (the Tinto with just PV on the label) feels surprisingly full in the mouth on opening. It is mostly tank-fermented and aged, although there may be some wood somewhere. That is, this unusual entry level wine combines some of the wineryâ€™s own juice with purchased juice to the point where they are not always 100% positive what the grapes are, said Jose Maria Calem, and parts of it may come from producers who used a bit of wood. Overall, he said, wood is irrelevant here, and he considers it unoaked. Indeed, it shows nice purity of fruit, consistent with the wineryâ€™s other offerings, and beautiful balance. Actually, when it comes to purity, it may well win the contest, no doubt due to the tank emphasis. This is fresh, clean and nicely focused, while being quite tasty and classier that most wouldâ€™ve thought, given the description of its origins. It also lingers beautifully on the finish. It is listed at 13.5% alcohol, some restraint in a vintage that often had little in that regard. This was a vintage, though, that could be very kind to lower-level wines, providing some delicious fruit. This may have been oddly produced, but it is a nice bargain for short-term drinking that should make a lot of friends at the price point. - See more at: https://www.varmax.com/wines/PV-Douro-Tinto-2009-w2582988nt#sthash.7f4Fjy5C.dpufView all products by PV Douro TintoCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
