2015 Borges Douro Red Reserve Wine
Wine of clear appearance and strong red color. This is a wine with a strong scent of black fruits, such as blackberries, but where hints of orange blossom and menthol are also to be found, which are very well balanced with the wood, lending it great complexity. Reveals a smooth taste, with ripe tannins. The strong fruity flavor predominates with hints of toasty oak which prolongs the aftertaste.
