2003 Quinta Do Vallado Douro Reserva

A blend of Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarella, Touriga Nacional. Touriga Franca and Sousao. This wine has held up well over 16 years. A cherry/raspberry nose. Raspberry fruit on the palate with pepper and rare meat. The fruit is still bright, but starting to fade. Very fine tannins, acidity has crept slightly out of balance. Short finish. This was probably better a few years ago, but still gives pleasure. "B"
