Sousão Douro DOC 2012
Editorial Reviews for Sousão Douro DOC
100% Sousão. Malolactic fermentation and ageing in 100% new French oak for 20 months A bit gamy and animal on the nose with lots of fennel seed and beet root accents to the core of blue fruit. with air this turns into a mulberry, minty, eucalyptus bomb! Rich with dry extract density and accompanying high acid and slightly rough tannins this feels rather dry with an old school texture and flavor profile. Dark, long and rich in the mouth it’s beautiful with its unique profile and chewy long finish. Superbly savory and deep, this is structured, chewy, inky and aromatic in the mouth, but not terribly fruity so it may appeal to a limited audience. Serve it with game meats or goat. 92pts
