Lovely and full wine with aromas of vanilla, lavender and black fruit. Soft on the palette with a very long finish. This wine will be even better in a few years, but is very enjoyable right now.

Very good Touriga Nacional typicity demonstrated in this Douro red. Dark, brooding, good depth of flavour with dark fruit (blueberry really jumped out for me), and medium plus tannin that are starting to resolve. Balanced and with very good to excellent length. Decant or give some time in the glass, as the aromatics were a bit closed initially, but opened up with time.
Oct. 2017.
