Horta Osorio – Grande Escolha 2015 – Douro 

The nose is fruity, very slightly tight and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, cassis and small notes of Sichuan pepper, violet / laurel associated with touches of wild raspberry, dark chocolate as well as a very discreet hint of caramelization and blond tobacco. The palate is mineral, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a good guideline as well as a small mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, blackberry and small notes of small wild berries, laurel / violet associated with small touches of olive tree, cassis, discreet hints of liquorice, eucalyptus, chocolate, discreet toasted hints as well as a very discreet hint of camphor and cardamom. Tannins are well-built and slightly firm. Good length.
