1998 Quinta da Cavadinha

Post by AHB » 18:12 Thu 11 Apr 2013

Modest red, opaque. Gentle and fragrant on the nose with a good approach. Soft and hollow entry followed by a slow build up of fierce tannins and candied fruit. Modest body. Gentle finish of raspberries and cedar wood. Pleasant, youthful and surprisingly balanced on the palate with a persistent finish. 87/100. 20-Feb-13 at the New Douro Tasting.
