RESERVA 2016 Vinho Regional Tejo
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer BABU
A REPEAT of the recommended 2016 (**/**+) with 88-points that was released on October 13, 2018 at $13.95. Here is my previous note: Fairly deep intense purple colour. Slightly spicy, sandalwood-tinged, ripe, plum prune nose. Fairly dry, medium to medium-light bodied, quite juicy, fresh, plummy flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, slightly toasty finish. Ready-to-drink. This tasty, recently bottled batch is a wide-appeal, crowd-pleaser - it has 13.5% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar with lot number L8165 on the back label. CSPC 617175
