Casa Santos Lima Colossal Reserva Red 2016
|Brand||Casa Santos Lima|
This is certainly an intensely structured wine, but its name seems rather excessive for what are balanced fruit and juicy tannins. It has a smooth, minty character, bold berry fruits and a ripe full texture. The tannins and acidity will allow the wine to age further well into 2019, although it can be drunk now.
Concentrated, with ripe black cherry tart and raspberry reduction notes underpinned with mocha and baking spice details. Supple tannins frame the mineral and grilled herb aromas on the finish. Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Tinta Roriz and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2022. 55,500 cases made, 38,500 cases imported.
