Quinta do Couquinho – Reserva 2017 – Douro

The nose is fruity. It reveals notes of strawberry, blackberry and milk chocolate associated with small touches of raspberry, caramelization as well as a hint of blueberry and sweet spices / caramelization. It needs to be put in carafe. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit tight and offers a juicy / slightly acidulous frame, tension, freshness, minerality as well as concentration. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy strawberry and small notes of vanilla, toasted associated with small touches of fleshy / juicy blueberry, caramelization and a slight hint of chocolate. Tannins are slightly marked. Power on the finish / persistence.
