Tasted at Single Varietal Vintage Port & a Gould Campbell 1985
. Links to other tasting notes:
Good deep purple colour. Very perfumed nose dominated by violets. In the mouth much more subtle. Surprisingly so, indeed. An odd mixture of initial sugar followed by quite a lot of dryness. Tannins present but not excessively so. The best nose of the samples but not very interesting to drink on its own.

Sadly my sample bottle of Touriga Nacional was so badly corked that even I could smell it and taste it. Your notes sound familiar, though, based on previous tastings of single-varietal Touriga Nacionals that I've had before.
