2011 Barao de Vilar

Post by AHB » 14:55 Sat 02 Nov 2013

Sour, grapefruit-like nose with sour cherries also showing strongly on the palate. A sour / bitter presence from the fruit mellows slightly with patience on the palate, and eventually sits alongside some powerful tannins.The finish is long and full of cedar-wood. 90-92.
