Charme Douro Red Blend 2014

Great as this 14 was also picked before the heavy rains.
Medium ruby intensity with light edges.
The nose is more elegant and ethereal, with rose, and lifted bright red fruit aromatics of cherry and pomegranate, and a line of fresh minerality and terroir. Dirk's ode to Red Burgundy. The intensity on the palate is more elegant, but more precise than Batuta showing more transparency and definition. This is a field blend from 70-100+ year old vine north facing vineyards in Pinhao at Vale de Mendiz.
