Really nice Douro red, but give it 2 hours in bottle or less in decanter to open fully. A solid red core with ruby edges. The nose reveals a nice balance of fruit and minerality, with cherry, plum, tobacco, crushed rocks and a touch floral. The palate shows good balance that the nose hinted to, but if anything the tannins need more integration, great buy at $20 from one of Portugal's top wine producers.
