“A strong dark fruit element runs through this deeply colored and inky red. Well-structured, with a powerful acidity behind the savory herb, mocha, plum and dried blackberry flavors, flanked by dense, minerally notes. Shows good grip on the finish.”
"Features an aroma of raspberry, with plenty of snap to the chocolate mousse, dark currant and kirsch flavors, accented by hints of mineral and slate. The dense, muscular finish displays elements of mocha, spice and cream."
RECOMMENDED: “The Pintas Character is the steal of the lineup, a more modestly priced version of their flagship red, simply called Pintas….A field blend of Douro’s indigenous grapes Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional, along with a smattering of more than two dozen other indigenous varieties, this subtle yet substantial red is foot-crushed in traditional granite troughs and delivers a haunting red-fruit scent and taste of mulberry. It shows, in a single sip, just what Douro can do in a modern world.”
