Azul Portugal Douro Reserva 2015 (Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz)
- View: A sinfully ruby red.
- Nose: An oaky, spicy scent immediately hits your nose with its aromatically floral concentration. Red fruit and vanilla are tangible aromas that add complexity when lightly stirred.
- Mouth: Ripe red fruits and toasted spices add to the wine's complexity and elegance. A smooth, fruity finish with tannin adds structure to this devilish red. The flavour balances out well as the acidity level remains at a reasonable number. A long-lasting finish that dares you to continue your enjoyment of the bottle.
