O Produtor, tasting note published in September 16th 2021
Colour: Brown, with a mahogany core and a dark greenish amber on the rims; Nose: Eccentric, initially revealing notes of old wood, varnish and wax. Amidst a great complexity of aromas, pralines, various dried fruit liquors, roasted coffee, some tobacco, some dark chocolate that blends with the caramel/ molasses (praline), honey and discreet vinegars are revealed. Mouth: Where the wine reveals its best characteristics. A very unctuous, vigorous, expressive and very ample attack, where the aromas reveal all its best characteristics. Nuts, honey, figs, tobacco, toasted caramel (praline) are the first to stand out. Old wood notes evolve into vinegars and spices that mutate into many different varieties. The wine seems to have no end, being very long and persistent but with present acidity, which makes it fresh, gluttonous and irresistible.
