Despite 2014 being a rather fresh year, this wine already feels seriously aged – it’s a bit dusty and clearly evolved, with some baked plum and a bit of christmas spice. There’s a lot of complexity to the nose and the palate.
The fruit is tinged with herbal notes, some wax and quite a tangy, herbaceous character. But there is a real feeling that this is heading over the hill – it’s starting to lose freshness, and that’s a surprise for Dão and this vintage.
Definitely not one to cellar – drink now!
