2012 Quinta La Rosa Reserva Douro image

There is more Touriga Nacional here but there are a lot of different varietals in the blend and this wine is from the older vines, more extraction and they do a saignee to get even better color, extraction and complexity, new wood.  A huge bouquet of fresh plowed earth, graphite like mineral notes, espresso , dark berry fruit and a host of herbs and flowers, very complex and even better on the second day!   A big and volumous wine on the tongue with a huge amount of fruit, both black and red with a long layered finish, the nose here has a host of wild herbs, flowers, black licorice and fresh earth, very distinct terroir, dark spices, with a wonderful freshness at the end, wonderful balance, a very long layered finish.  This wine needs a day to open up or 10+ years in the cellar!  Finish 50+    Most Excellent
