Deep ruby in colour with intense aromas of dark fruits such as ripe plum and forest fruits with some fresh notes of esteva (a local Portuguese resinous bush). Notes of spices and smoke are also detected which make this wine very entertaining. On the mouth it shows good quality tannins, great concentration and elegance. Long lasting finish on the mouth. Produced only in the finest years, this wine is an authentic blend of the best that the Douro has to offer.
This powerful wine demands a complex meal! Highly recommended with game meat such as wild boar and venison or even with matured cheeses such as stilton and cheddar.
