Fine example of Portugese Reserve wine from an excellent vintage. Very much the 'jewel in the crown' of Portugese wine making and only made in special years.The ageing in American Oak for 6 months has added complexity to the wine. Delicious and mouthfilling, drinking beautifully now but worth laying down.
Ageing Potential:5-7 Years
Deep garnet wine with tawny rim. Complex earthy tones with rich opulent baked fruits , tar and smoke. Dry with firm tannin structure and huge weight of dark autumn berries, big extract and concentration. A serious wine with power and elegance combined.
