Quinta Das Carvalhas Douro Touriga Nacional 2014

Member Review by zufrieden:

In the glass, the rim shows a clean deep cherry red; the core of the liquid is almost opaque blackness. Lovers of Port will recognize the grapey-cigar nose topped with wild blueberries in the pail (Ruby Port). Cherry notes develop with a swirl or two. Entry is rich with black fruit such as huckleberry and there is a good dollop of tannin - though not too intrusive - just a promise of further bottle aging. Finish is long with black fruit lingering on a bed of vanilla-oak. Rich, and deserving of a steak or Portuguese chicken. The wine is very pure and there is much finesse and elegance to enjoy... as the wine develops further in the glass. 91..
