"The 2006 EX AEQUO is a blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Touriga Nacional. Stern and crisp, particularly on opening, this wine is a little austere and closed at first, but it gradually expands and evolves. It is rather gamey and the Syrah component is certainly in control. Not surprisingly, it seems rather Rhone-ish. Powerful and gripping on the finish, focused and lingering, it is a pretty nice performance in this vintage. While I would bet this does not achieve everything they have in mind, it is already an interesting project that makes me want to see what happens next year, and it is probably the most complex of Monte d’Oiro’s offerings this year. Drink now-2018."
