2018 Ultimate Wine Challenge

Castello D'Alba Vinhas Velhas 2015 Douro (Portugal), 14.5% abv, $24.00

90
Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Distinctive aromas of tobacco, dark berries, and roasted herbs are inviting and sultry. In the mouth the fruit takes on a spicy character with cinnamon and crushed pink peppercorns. Silky tannins provide good structure, and would be well matched with roasted meats and grilled vegetables.
