Borges, Quinta da Soalheira – Vinhas Velhas 2015 – Douro

The nose is fruity and offers a very slight concentration as well as juicy and fresh fruit. It reveals notes of juicy fresh cherry, juicy / ripe berry and small notes of fresh blackberry associated with touches of ripe/fresh blueberry as well as hints of flowers, red berry, Zan, a racy minerality and an imperceptible hint of pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a good juicy / mineral frame as well as dynamism. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy red berry associated with small touches of blueberry, raspberry as well as discreet hints of licorice, discreet toasted hints and an imperceptible hint of flowers and mocha. Tannins are well-built. Good length and good persistence. There are a hint of caramelization, chocolate, juicy fruit and hazelnut on the persistence.
