  • Could not find the notes of port in this bottle I was expecting. A bit bland, but not undrinkable. Some hints of cellar and oak. Had it for almost three years and saw very little development from first tasting.

  • Potent, full of fruit, but a triffle rough at the edges - you know you are drinking this.

  • 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.

  • Likely opened too early. A very big wine, but not all coming together as previous vintages have for me. Oak, spice, and huge dense red fruit with specific cherry notes coming to the front. Good acidity. This is going to be good in a few years.

  • It pours dark purple, initially with a strong whiff of oak and only oak. The texture is amazingly thick: legs stick to the glass like Aunt Jemima. The first sip was a bit disappointing, with some muted dark fruit, lots of oak, and a weak, short finish.
    Before I write it off as overoaked, characterless crap, out comes the decanter. This was the right move, as four hours or air time completely changed its character,
    giving up good dark fruit and chocolate flavors, before finishing off with velvety soft tannins. At day 2, its charm is intact.
