Spicy and smoky ripe dark fruits with some mint and chocolate. Full bodied and rich but with lush tannins. Completely Iberian in its profile and identity,

Have not had Portuguese wine for awhile. A sip of this took me down to the memory lane of my visits to this beautiful country. And sometimes wine is just that: spending good time with family and friends.

I fell in love with everyday Portuguese red wine 20 years ago when I stayed there for a couple of weeks. They are to me always a great value and enjoyable. This one is a great example of those qualities. Touches of leather and plum on the nose and dark cherry and earthy tones on the palate. Nice tannins with a good finish. One of those wines you can enjoy watching a movie, drinking with friends at a party or even with higher end dinner party.

Not being familiar with the Douro I want to try value wine first. This wine was nice and austere. Great earth notes and blue fruit. The tannins were lacking and the flavor diffuse. I did really like the flavor profile so I will try another producer.
