Dark plum color. A hearty nose. Cherry and some tar. Flavor is rich and elegant. Bit of cassis. Licorice. Lovely. Deep. Classic Douro.

Big body, strong tannins yet well rounded. Plum, berry with a dusty, leathery finish. I drank it with Mushroom Ragu over soft polenta; it worked really well by toning down the sweetness of the dish.

This was an excellent pairing with our lamb and beef while visiting Norway.

Delivers plenty of robust fruit for this price point. Shorter finish.
