2008 Dow Quinta Senhora da Ribeira

Post by DRT » 08:57 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

Some unintegrated spirit on the nose with a very sweet entry. Medium weight with red fruits and high acidity. Powder-dry tannins with a slightly bitter finish. A pleasant wine to drink now but lacking composure and structure. 85 points.
