Notes of minerality and pepper and very easy on the palate. Probably would have been best to decant it beforehand but it settled down nicely. — 6 days ago

This is a funny one too. My line manager (polish, her) is one the greatest wine lover I know. We've been working with one another for over 2 and half years but she's been my boss since January. We always have had that lovely habit to exchange wine bottles. Every time she travels and attends to tastings she would bring back a bottle to me and the other way around. This year I brought her back one of those white Beaujolais I shared earlier this month and she brought me back this one from Portugal.
Nice nose with black currant, bacon, smoke, blackberry even. This is intoxicating. The palate is easy going with a strong acid backbone and a lot of matter all along. Some width, some of these smokey notes, some tannins too in midpalate, that power up a good long smokey, fruity finish with some freshness. This is overall rather very good! — a month ago
Intense and so well balanced.
One of the best from Alentejo at an accessible price. — 19 days ago
I think we had the 2011 or 2010 - in Porto. It was delicious. Really full, heavy tannins but still balanced - absolutely delicious — 25 days ago
Just a wonderful WOM 7-21. Very well balanced. Oaky! Loved it. — 3 days ago
Very aromatic. Overwhelming. A dark fruit: blackberry, plum. Then: a cigar. Long finish with spicy notes. Love it. — 6 days ago
Very bright and jammy, paired with chocolate blueberries and it was delicious. Would buy again — 22 days ago
Delicious. Is that the least or most useful tasting note? But this is. It’s is a rich dish that someone thought fit to squeeze a lemon on to brighten that dish up. The new oak is in play and probably the biggest factor, but the acid is there—somehow gently cutting through.
Something still keeps it from being transcendent but you are definitely going to desire a second glass. — a month ago
