It's only wine but I like it

Aromatically shy, this Douro exhibits cool blackberry fruit with a firm texture. David's description of this being "stony" is quite apt. The flavours are pleasant and oak is well dialed in yet this red fails to excite. It's a decent wine, not a bad price but my feeling was one of "It's ok". That said, this showed much better with beef stew, so, yeah, let's call this a food wine, Might show a bit better in a year or so Tasted March 2021.
