Borges – Reserva Tinto 2012 – Douro

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a slight concentration as well as a slight greediness/richness. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry cream and slight hints of fleshy strawberry, cassis associated with hints of oak, zan, toasted oak as well as a discreet hint of blond tobacco. The palate is fruity, fine, mineral, racy, well-balanced, harmonious, gourmand and quite elegant. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry and cassis jam associated with slight notes of fleshy strawberry, raspberry, blueberry as well as slight notes of toasted oak, slight notes of caramelized and discreet hints of zan. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
