Boom πŸ’₯ what a delish Portuguese wine @ Β£65 that’s drinking well young but give this 10-15 years and bigbadaboom 😍 One of the best πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή wines I’ve ever had πŸ‘ Its like a Bordeaux meets Bolgheri meets Ribera del Duero w/ a dollop of Napa πŸ‘€

πŸ“Bruno Prats & Symington Chryseia 2015

🏡 93 points w/ 94+ potential I’d say πŸ˜‰

πŸ‡ 65% Touriga Nacional & 35% Touriga Franca

🍷 Deep opaque blackened ruby w/ purple edge

πŸ‘ƒ Chocolate bathed wild ripe bramble bush & blackcurrant goo in earthy soft smoked oak w/ light mineral, smashed pencil, red liquorice, black tea, blueberry, white pepper, purple rose & violets

πŸ‘„ Full bodied, but well balanced & not overpowering (almost elegant) rich rip very earthy dark boysenberry, blackberry & raspberry fruits w/ a mineral, cocoa & liquorice backbone

🎯 Very long stoney mineral infused (but hardly dry) slight green unripe black berry fruits & raspberry w/ bitter dark chocolate mocha, black tea & liquorice

Portuguese wines continue to deliver. Dark fruits with hints of graphite, dark chocolate make a great combo.

Often under appreciated, Douros are outstanding. Layers of currant, and other dark berry fruit. Hints of minerality and some chocolate.

Absolutely delightful Portuguese red wine tonight in the Algarve. Very surprising in the best possible way.
