90 points Wine & Spirits-Best Portugal Table Wine
On the nose, very elegant with all the elements present in a subtle way – floral undertones, soft red fruit and light spicy notes. The 2016 is relatively light for a Douro wine, young and full of energy. There is a purity in the wine, good acidity & complex flavors coming from the quality of the maturation of the grapes.
