Blackberries. Deep dark and red fruit. Nose announces a great wine. A little vegetal note I can't figure out. Great concentration with ultra fine tannins... What a classy wine. Incredible concentration and extremely elegant. Feels like being hit by silk gloves of a beautiful 19 year old girl ... Lingers on sugar cane (fresh ) and some coffee . This is an amazing wine... I've only drank few bottles like this... Wow!!! Douro at its best!!
Symington-smaking i regi av Aperitif (Gamle Logen, Oslo): Farge: Dyp, tett, mørk rubinrød mot blålilla. Duft: Dyp, elegant frukt av mørke bær. Smak: Bløtere, rikere enn Post Scriptum (2de vin), lang ettersmak, meget velbalansert, en god vin. Trolig en meget interessant matvin. Lang ettersmak. Denne kan faktisk matche LBV i smaksrikdom.
Elegant. Opens with a pruny and bold nose. Vibrant, spicy and acidic, it's an easy play for food. Plenty of tannins tell me it has time under the hood. Complex and satisfying. A departure from what most of us drink every day. A Lisbon purchase -- glad I captured it.
