2012 Quinta da Revolta

Post by AHB » 12:25 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Deep purple and opaque. Really nice, expressive blackcurrant nose. Big fruit on the palate but with immense tannins and cheek-burning acidity. Great presence on the palate but perhaps lacking a little complexity. Alcohol shows early on the finish but this fades away to reveal some delicate violets. 88-90/100. 05-Mar-15.
