    March 9, 2021 - Blossomed after a few hours opened in the decanter.it Still has the fruit and backbone to age further.Still looks young. Try again in 2022

    December 25, 2020 - Dark ruby.
    Nose a bit difficult to define, maybe dried cranberries &figs.
    Blackberry jam on burnt toast palate.
    Enjoyable.

    February 14, 2020 - Deep seated fruit still available, revealed on the finish which is long and structured. Lots of "stuffing" still. Future depends whether fruit holds on.

    May 11, 2019 - Purple color with little sign of age. Camphor and dark very ripe berries on the nose, cigarbox - heavy but fresh. High acidity, tannins and alcohol. A very structured wine. My immediate impression was high quality, European in a ripe style, but way too young. Makes sense that we are somewhere on the Duoro river, but 2008? Really impressive how this is holding up, would have guessed 5 years old rather than +10. Will keep my last bottle for +5 years and see what happens.

    January 3, 2019 - On 3rd evening - plenty of fruit. Silky texture. Long fruit-filled finish. Fine tannins. Complex. Doing well.
