The 2006 José Maria Da Fonseca José De Sousa made of 33% Trincadeira, 45% Grand noir and 22% Aragonês is medium bodied with integrated notes of prune, smoke and cedar. Tannins are refined (decant for 30 min), acidity is nice and refreshing and the finish is smooth and medium to long. My impression: very NICE, 88.5 pts - recommended buy, especially at this discounted price. Tasted Jan/11.
