    The 2009 QUINTA DA LEDA (CASA FERREIRINHA) is a familiar icon in the region. It is a blend of 50% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca and 10% Tinta Roriz, aged in a 50/50 mixture of new and old oak. In this array of specialty wines from Sogrape, this most iconic and traditional label is the least expensive and easily my favorite. This is a lovely vintage here. The wine has purity and it is expressive, becoming slightly earthy as the ripe fruit integrates. It is also a bit steely while remaining rich and fragrant. There are certainly some powerful tannins here, more and more apparent with air. It needs to be cellared, but ultimately it should be beautifully balanced and quite harmonious. It is a lovely effort that should be a consensus favorite.
