1999 Dow Senhora da Ribeira

Post by DRT » 20:43 Sat 23 Jun 2012

1999 Dow Quinta da Ribeira
Decanted 1 hour and 30 minutes.

100% opaque. Very dark red. Blackcurrant jam nose - very open and fruity. Good weight with lots of dark fruit, good acidity and dry tannin. A very balanced wine with no particular element overpowering the others. Very typical Ribeira minerality in the finish.

I like this :D
