Tasted On 08/07/2009
Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, CastelÃ£o. Ages 18 months in oak barrels and another 18 months of bottle aging.
Decanted for 1 hour.
Another great wine from DÃ£o.
On the nose, it shows coffee, sweet ripe cherries, cassis, kirsch, a little bit of mint and toasty aromas. Wonderful, complex and expressive nose! I could feel the wonderful nose while decanting it.
On the palate, it's full bodied, balanced, round tannins, gently astringent, long aftertaste, very nice acidity, with more coffee, cassis and cedar with certain bitterness at the very end.
This wine is a staggering QPR.
