A4: Orangey fruit top note. Palate mixed fruit with citrus and a hint of raisony ripeness. Good but lighter structure. Simple perhaps, but smooth and attractive. Good.

Redcurrants and berries. Citric with decent tannins. Not massively complex but drinkable. Good

(Tasted sighted) Single Quinta. Deep purple nose of violets, strawberries ,raspberries and a touch of pepper. Spicy and hot on the palate – smokey, not quite in balance, OK - may develop further. 89

Black cherry and pronounced spices. Interesting aromas of fresh coffee beans and smoke. I found some vegetal character there (not offensive but rather strange). On the palate it's big on tannins. Although it has some interesting aromatic characteristics, I felt the alcohol is somewhat unbalanced. The wine has a medium+ finish. 15.5/20
