WINE & SOUL Douro Red Wine 'Pintas Character' 2014

The 'Pintas Character' is a field blend of 30 different varietals sourced from 45-year old Vale de Mendiz vineyard adjacent to the 85-year old Pintas vineyard. This was aged for 18 months in 50% new barriques prior to bottling. Starting off with dark and red fruits on the nose, the palate is medium-bodied and silky, with flavors characteristics of red cherries, red bell pepper, anise and coffee ground all coming together beautifully. While appealing now, this should continur to evolve in the cellar over the course of the next decade.
