This is a superb discounted red from the Symington Portfolio who are more know for their famous port brands such as Grahams and Dows. However over half the Douro Valley is given over to red wine production and this is made from the steep sided river terraces in the harsh Douro River Valley. Low yields and old vines produced wines of remarkable quality and here you have sweet, ripe blackberry and black cherry aromatics with notes of liqourice and violet. The palate is supple and ripe with a hint of chocolatey oak, as well as sweet black fruits and a bit of damson. A grippy, stony finish with some hints of meat and olive.
