Comment by sommelier Eric Boschman:

"what can I say except that this cuvée is just insane. Paroxysmal perhaps. Vines worked with all the mastery of the house. It's both racy and rustic. But without the rusticity. I love the aromatic power, the structure, the spiciness and the elegance of the structure. Sousao in an expression like this is just a bomb. It's enormous. That's what a great wine is. I'm sure it will easily take a decade in the teeth without spoiling. But even if it's still a teenager, it's already magnificent. In fact, its strength lies in its balance. There aren't enough wines of this calibre in my life, it's a shame..."

 

Denomination: Doc Douro

Grapes: Sousao

Alcohol: 14.5%

Vinification: Total de-stemming. Fermentation for 8 days with temperature control + 2 days maceration.

Tasting Notes : Dark ruby color. Notes of eucalyptus, blackberries and ripe, slightly tarry plums. Fresh on the palate, with a solid, robust structure, but always with balance and harmony. Vigorous but well-integrated tannins.
