[Barrel tasting] This is wonderful, with fabulous aromas of crushed blueberries and blackberries. Itrsquo;s full-bodied, medium-sweet and seductively silky. It goes on and on on the palate.

Ruby-purple, a bit more saturated than the Secundum. Brooding aromas of crushed black fruits, licorice and spices. Very ripe, thick and dense, with compelling sweetness of fruit. Bright, integrated acid give this lush, fleshy, palate-coating wine excellent tensile strength. Finishes impressively long and bright, with finely grained, mouthdusting tannins. This has a terrific kernel of fruit and a three-dimensional palate feel.

A prodigious effort from a small house thatandrsquo;s becoming one of the Douroandrsquo;s best. The fruit is massive; huge and inky and filled with blackberries and chocolate. Yet for all its size, it finishes with finesse-filled layers of flavor that fold in mint and black pepper notes.

Bright, full ruby. Brooding aromas of roasted black fruits, coffee and bitter chocolate. Suave on entry, then dense and silky in the mouth, with lovely lift and brightness for the vintage. Firm flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, licorice and minerals. Builds slowly and inexorably on the back end, with the huge, youthfully aggressive yet even tannins spreading out to coat the front teeth. A big boy, and likely to be long-lived.

A harmonious, powerful young thing. Super aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of wet earth and tobacco. Full-bodied and racy, with loads of silky tannins and a long, long finish. Medium sweet. It builds on your palate and then, wham. Serious stuff. Best after 2011.
