Bottled unfiltered in 1993. Drunk at Prastos e Costas in Regua. Brick red in colour, clearly mature, only 50% opaque. Full of rich Douro bake on the nose, lots of raisins and toffee apple. Rich in the mouth, dried dates and sweet golden sultanas. Deep texture and a great mouthfeel, terrific balance other than a slight touch of heat showing through. Gentle and sweet aftertaste of candied cherry and dried dates. Long and lingering finish. This is a lovely wine, at an elegant and well balanced phase of its life. Delightful drinking today. 85/100. Drunk 24 September 2010.
