Quinta do Portal – Auru 2011 – Douro

The nose is fruity, fine and quite elegant. It reveals notes of blackberry and ripe black fruit combined with a few notes of licorice as well as slight notes of spices and a discreet touch of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, fleshy, balanced, well-structured, dense and offers a beautiful silky / gourmande matter, tension and a fruity frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and slight notes of red cherry, raspberry associated with slight notes of chocolate, a touch of cassis bud and a few small woody notes. Tannins are fine and very slightly firm. Good length.
