The 2010 VINHAS VELHAS red is a big uptick in depth and power over its elegant sibling, the Vinha Barrosa. Intense, crisp and quite stunning this year, it is gripping on the finish, silky and impressive. Its structure and acidity should give it a long life ahead, but it has the depth to support those structural items as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if this closes down hard for a couple of years in the near future. Beware. Drink 2014-2030.
