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.

Pretty light red color with thin legs. Faint cherry and raspberry on the nose. Juicy red, sweet cherries and very smooth tannins as far as the last goes. Shorter finish than I was expecting, it definitely gets better with a bit of breathing.

It was my first Portuguese wine, it was good, great wine for the value and smooth drinkability. It was underwhelming however, I would count out Portuguese wines!

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.
