« Prev Next » 10 of 12
Average price: $11.79 from 6 stores
A blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz Lovely spicy baking spices over briary blueberry fruit greets the nose here joined by some slightly inky fruit aromas topped with some smoky, burnt sugar notes. The oak on the nose may not be overpowering but this is some very perfumed wood. High acid on entry, and showing some very soft, fine grained tannins, this is both bright and inviting it the mouth with flavors that are a bit earthy with lots of high toned blue and wild cherry fruits that are framed by an assertive mineral edge. This shows lovely depth of flavor on the palate without much weight, and great clarity to the rather precise and very clear an edgy of wild cherry on the backend and through the bright fruity finish. This is really lovely 90pts
