Esporão, Quinta dos Murças Reserva, Douro, Portugal, 2011
Quinta dos Murças Reserva
Platinum: Best Red Portugal
20% Tinta Roriz, 20% Tinta Amarela, 20% Tinta Barroca
Complex coffee and dark chocolate aromas with spicy dark fruit and a hint of Christmas pudding. Shows structure and potential with lightly grippy tannins and balanced acidity. It's wonderfully detailed and complex, yet achieves this with a fleet of foot and freshness of face. It will be fascinating to watch it develop. Masterful winemaking.
