(2020) Stanton & Killeen's Classic wine has an average age of 12 years in the solera, vines planted in 1921, 1968, 1985, 1996 and 2002. It has 282.5g/l of residual sugar and is aged in large oak casks. Another dark wine, amber on the rim, and the aromatics brighter than the Chambers, but there's a dry, nut husk note that grounds the aromatics, maybe something like physillis, coffee and raisins. In the mouth fabulous richness and a lovely edge of red apple acidity to this that balances the sumptuous sweet, dark, raisined vine fruits and lusciousness.
(2020) The wine with the longest name in the history of grape juice. 54% is Merlot. This has a nice floral touch, a nuttiness, a cedary style too. There’s juiciness to spare here, quite high acid adding a sour cherry bite, and firm, drying tannins.
(2019) Older French oak for 75% of this, plus 25% of new American oak. Luis says it's a deliberate move to make a style more similar to New World wines, but still all Portuguese varieties (60% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz). Slightly balsamic, more spicy opening, but the vinous Douro fruit is there, savoury, dark, lovely deep plummy vine fruits.
