I'm experimenting with Portugese wines. This one was one of 2 highly recommend wines at Total Wine. (The less expensive one. Not the $80 bottle.) As suggested, we let it air out for about an hour, aerated it (decanter was dirty), and did small pours for max swirlage. Soft and mellow with blueberry at the front and some woodiness at the end.

After the grand vin we tasted the young vines on the second wine. Great bottle. This is a tell tale Douro dry red that is very drinkable as we speak but can hold easily 10 years. Medium body, velvety tannins and medium length, this is a delight and the price is really OK. Highly recommended !

Deep violet color red from Douro region. Fantastic wild forest berries aromas with a dry finish that pairs with red meats, strong cheeses and game.

Nicely fruit forward. Opens well with decanting after an hour or so. Good, easy drinking bargain.

It is a really dark purple color. Seemed to taste more flavor with each sip

Good nose of cherry, plum and some baking spice. Tight pallet and ripe tannins.

After about an hour of decanting it opened up beautifully. Nice dark maroon with a light purple hue. Bright cherry with some caramel spice on the nose with a nice balanced pallet of dark red fruit, chalky soil, and nice ripe tannins with a nice easy acidity. Great stuff! Great price!
