This is a beautiful Sino, rather full in the mouth for this level, soft and caressing on the palate and simply bursting with flavor. There is not a lot of mid-palate concentration, despite the full-bodied initial feel, but the juicy finish is laced with sweet fruit and it is quite delicious. There are ripe tannins for support. The wine has a fresh, bright feel that should make it easily approachable, but it may improve further over the next year, too. It is impeccably balanced and quiet lovely for mid-term consumption.
The wine is a classic Douro blend dominated by Touriga Franca, giving a rich, soft and juicy character that is ready to drink. It has great fruit, spice and integrated tannins.
Fresh and elegant with very seductive balanced fruit and soft approachable tannins. This is a wine that expresses the wild beauty of its Douro Origins.
