99 Calheiros Cruz, Douro Tinta Roriz

This is a single varietal wine that tastes like a blend of several. The nose is young, Washington cabernet--exotically floral, steamy, and leathery. Bright plummy fruit and stiff, but melting tannins saturate the tongue. Spicy syrah-like notes of black pepper, cumin, and fennel notes climax into a chocolate peppermint patty finish.
