Sounds like a great/fun wine!

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Douro Red Blend 2016

Portuguese Duoro from +70 year old vines with a dark inky color; takes about an hour to open up with scents of vanilla, plum and black currant. On the pallet, the wine begins very austere and rustic, gradually evolves to progressive layers of dark fruit, vanilla, cocoa, leather and piercing acidity. This a full bodied, complex wine with firm tannins and a rigid structure, medium plus alcohol. Really enjoyed this wine and pair’s excellent with red pasta and dishes rich in animal fat; do give it time to open up though, it’ll pay-off for sure.
