Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, 2022. “14% alcohol. This is quite special. Beautiful floral black cherry and blackberry fruit on the nose with hints of olive and meat. The palate is fresh and vital with rich, seductive black fruits and hints of olive tapenade, tar and spice. This is a ripe wine, but there’s also lovely freshness. The oak is present, but in the background. A really impressive expression of the Douro, seen through the lens of a single variety. Drinking well now, but will benefit from a few more years in bottle. 94/100”.
