Herdade dos Grous 23 Barricas Vinho Regional Alentejano 2012 (4.3/5)
Notes: It appears opaque red purple, with good legs. On the nose it's clean offering med+ notes of mulberries, black cherries and blackcurrants, violets and spices/balsamic notes, chocolate and cedar from barrique. On the palate is dry, with med/med+ acidity, lots of (finely grained) tannins, med+ alcohol, medium+ to full body. Very good concentration of flavors and thick mid palate. Med+ to long finish. Modernly styled, but still with good grip and overall elegance.
Very Good quality, Drink Now but will improve for a decade or more, Premium Price. Syrah and Touriga Nacional, Alentejo, Portugal.
