O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2017

A deep and dense mixture of balsamic, dried red and black fruits backgrounded with graphite-tinged minerality. Texture is polished, continuous and velvety in the mouth. Richly endowed with expansive fruit at mid-palate. Firm, fine tannins develop on tongue and inner lips. Acidity seems soft initially, but rushes in at end. Big and long and very purely fruited. A seriously impressive wine for long term aging.
