Portugal — Douro • $13.95 • WD Score 88/100

Here’s an intriguing wine for the money. Deep purple in colour, it shows a youthful violet on the rim. Dense, ripe blueberry and blackberry fruit aromas are backed by an earthy undertone. The wine is dry, with nicely balanced acidity and alcohol, and fine, slightly squeaky tannins. There is no obvious oak apart from the merest hint of vanilla and spice. The fruit replays on the palate, and the savoury-earthy element emerges towards the finish. Another excellent value from the Douro. • Tasted 2018-02-03 • LCBO id#266882 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • THE VINE AGENCY (Agent)
