99 Quinta do Vale Meao, Douro

Blackberry jam and red currants front for burgeoning spice, cocoa, and lamb. With secondary and tertiary flavors developing for hours in the glass, this wine is tough to keep track of, but a pleasure to try. Wood spice and nougat. Evolving, fumey dark fruit and meat nose. Leathery tannins and bright acidity that, though not entirely together, compliment each other well, making this a wine to look forward to in the coming years.
