Casa Velha – Colheita Selecionada 2012 – Douro

The nose is fruity, fine and relatively elegant and a bit gourmand. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, cassis and slight hints of red fruits (in the background) associated with slight notes of spices as well as a hint of gray pepper, cardamom, olive, flint and toasted oak. The palate is fruity, fine, sleek and offers freshness (slight fresh frame), fat, greediness as well as a beautiful density and a beautiful grain. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, slight notes of plum and small notes of chocolate associated with hints of red fruits (raspberry, red berries) as well as hints of cardamom, Ceylan tea and toasted oak. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
