Quinta de Valle Longo – Reserva 2012 – Douro

The nose reveals notes of coffee and oak associated with slight notes of blackberry, cassis as well as slight/discreet hints of fresh strawberry. The palate is fruity, mineral, fresh and offers a mineral frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and slight notes of strawberry associated with a very discreet hint of red berries, minerality, chocolate, graphite as well as slight notes of toasted oak, spices and a very discreet hint of caramelized oak/cardamom on the finish/persistence. Good length.
