Something quite different here, a Castelão from Palmela, south of Lisbon, something intriguing and delicious. There's just so much going on, with aromas and flavours of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, cherry, leather, earth, and cinnamon, touches of spicy oak and smooth chocolate lingering in the back, so much concentrated fruit complemented by rich savoury elements. It admirably balances richness and tartness, and indeed it actually comes across like a blend of southern French GSM (without the pepper) and Burgundian Pinot. Closed at first, it opens up beautifully. Exceptional value.
