Expressive nose of chocolate, tea, white pepper, plums. Noticeable oak, fresh, firm tannins, refreshingly long aftertaste with balsamic hints. Will age

Tripping. This is real wine. Red cranberry and red plum with eucalyptus and bay leaf on the nose. Fresh attack and pure crunchy red and black fruit on the palate. Delicious fine grain tannins and a real and not fake finish. Pure wine man. #douro #portuguesewine #portugal #crasto somewhat reminiscent of Tuscany but not so tannic.

Blend of Touriga National (50%), Tinta Roriz (20%), Touriga Franca (25%) and Sousao (5%). Dark ruby/purple color. Aromas of dark berry fruit, black tea and dried oregano. The complex palate is full of cooked black cherry/berry/plum/raspberry fruit, balsamic vinegar, black olives, baking spices and a hint of iodine/blood. Light touch of oak on the finish. The tannins are soft but there is some noticeable heat. Quite full bodied. A bit tight right out of the bottle so give this one a decant. Bold but a bit overly rustic.

Pretty much as expected! Dark purple color. Restrained nose of oak and blackberry. Wine was tight but opened up and paired nicely with our steaks. The texture is the highlight as it is pure velvet. Lacked depth and fruit, but not terrible.
