2005 Croft Quinta da Roeda SQVP

3+ hours. Dark. Dense multi-faceted fruit on the nose. Black currants, perhaps, along with dark cherries. A touch of heat though. In the mouth, a lovely unctuous mouth-feel. Not particularly sweet, nor strong on fruit, but well balanced and elegant.

I get the impression that this might mature quite early but will be quite good when it does.
