This is a blockbuster. Big, rich and chewy. Aromas of black plum licorice, cocoa and pipe tobacco. Ripe black fruit flavours, with a hint of anise on the palate. There some slightly raisin-like notes that show the definite presence of Sousao in the blend. Where the Pedra a Pedra Tinto is a brighter, more modern wine, the Reserva is more Old School, classic Duoro. Brilliant acidity and some prevalent, but ripe tannins give this real structure. This is a wine for the dinner table, and would be ideal with a rack of lamb, or a hearty stew.
