De cor bordeux clara e bonito. Aroma suave e com notas adocicadas (a lembrar açúcar). Alguma madeira ligeira e toque a baunilha muito suave mas agradável. No sabor é algo adocicado demais. Enche meia boca e tem um final curto. Presença de frutos negros, sem madeira no sabor mas um toque a baunilha. Um vinho equilibrado e consistente, mas onde se nota demasiado o álcool. Foge um pouco ao meu gosto.

rckr1951 You gave both this and the above a 77. It seemed as though this was the better - did I read that right?

airdiogo Technically this one is better. However is not much my kind of wine and the alcohol brings a bad note. The other one has a very nice aroma and a good taste but don't match.
If I had to choose the better one i would go with this one.

The wine immediately hold back in resistance to showing its true colors, though hinting of dark red fruits, medicinal herbs and slate. In the mouth, the wine has good acidity, fine tannins and a medium long dark fruit finish. This wine, like many Douro reds, is a great wine to pair with food, but not necessarily to sip alone in silent contemplation of worldly matters. 2hours later: the wine does eventually open up, allowing more fruit and mineral to come out, but the alcohol still remains present on the finish.

rckr1951 Sounds as though I wouldn't be "in silent contemplation of worldly matters." for long.

Dark color on this wine with a rich meaty nose that shows touches of minerals around the edges. Needs some time to open up and develop. In the mouth fresh acidity with medium tannins and some heat on the finish combine for complexity, though still a bit rough. This is a wine that people who want power with food friendliness. Good fruit on the finish and a nice wine overall for varied menus.

bjwdad "Power" and "food friendly" is a promising combination!
