Mooie kleur, zachte smaak, beetje fruitig maar zeker niet te fruitig.
Bijzonder rood wijntje

The berry-ness is so smooth. Tannins are almost rustic. Really liked this.

Great spice and plum flavors for the price. I'd buy it again.

Good Portuguese reds are some of the worlds most underrated wines. Those from@the Douro Valley, particularly so. This is a cracking example from the Symington family.

2013. Big jammy nose, almost like a cherry pie with a hint of vanilla. Definite spiciness on the palate with that jammy berry flavor coming through, but it's the spice that lingers. Medium/low acid and very smooth. Yum! Flight at Seasons 52.

Drank it again. Here is a more in depth review: Earthy with a hint of berry and menthol on the nose. Flavor is also earthy. Kinda savory with tons of spice and even a bit of burnt garlic or something. Dark color, dark flavors, dark stuff. Pretty tannic. A strange but interesting little bugger.

Nice full and lovely Douro. Has all the components. Plenty of tannin. Flavor is ripe and tasty.
