2006 Conceito Douro Red Wine

Intense and pleasing. Red berries on the fragrant nose. Plum, cherries, a bit of anise on the palate. Polished tannins and crisp acidity. Nice balance. The anise comes back on the moderately long finish. Very polished mouthfeel. Very nice wine, a bit muscular, but still polished. This will probably drink well for another 3 or 4 years, but there is no need to wait on it. B+
