This wine has reached Tawny nirvana, all of its elements in harmony, its age a ghost of red fruit, its alcohol transformed into texture. It doesn’t suffer from oxidation, though it buzzes with richness, the flavors lasting on silken orange and fresh almond. Rather than the heat of Douro schist in August, it has the cool stoniness of the cellar where it evolved. Saturated with pleasure.
