Huckleberry flowers?! Fresh, soothingly soft but refreshing, like slathering on a lotion that energizes you which, if you respect your skincare game, surely you have energizing balms to soothe your limbs. So it is with this wine and your mouth. if this doesn't make sense just get a bottle and try it.

Earth driven scents of red fruit. Palate with very well balanced, easy drinking black fruit, and a bit of soil. Very well balanced, with medium tannins, and a black fruit filled finish.

3/21/8/5/3+50=90pts.

Beautiful expression of fruit and very true to its birthplace. Another testament to the greatness of the 2015 vintage in the Douro Valley.

Really nice Douro red, but give it 2 hours in bottle or less in decanter to open fully. A solid red core with ruby edges. The nose reveals a nice balance of fruit and minerality, with cherry, plum, tobacco, crushed rocks and a touch floral. The palate shows good balance that the nose hinted to, but if anything the tannins need more integration, great buy at $20 from one of Portugals top wine producers.

A mighty blend of Tourigas. Needs air and time to unleash. Only Portuguese people know how to deliver this type of wine. Excellent!
