The 2017 Twisted red is a Douro field blend aged in an 80/20 mixture of stainless steel and mostly used oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Fruit forward and quite delicious, this also has fine concentration this year, showing off a solid mid-palate to go with its delicious fruit. The tannins are very ripe-you can drink this right now-but it has the stuffing to age a bit, too, not that it is meant to be aged for 20 years (although Niepoort says it just might last that long). This might just be the best Twisted yet.
