The 2009 PASSA red is an equal blend of Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, with 10% Touriga Nacional, aged 70% in tank, with the rest in old oak for 18 months. This entry level normally shows friendly and fruity, loaded with charm. This year it seems to have a bit more than that, perhaps another of those lower level beneficiaries of the 09 vintage power. Nicely constructed, it has moderate tannins and more depth than normal. With air, it does begin to seem more like Passa, with that sweet, easygoing fruitiness, but it has, for its status, impressive concentration and structure this year. Drink now-2017.

Wine maker notes
Passa is sourced from the schistous Passadouro and Sibia vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro. The grape varieties used are Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, and Touriga Franca, with vines up to 60 years old. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in second- and third-passage French oak for 18 months.
