Casa Santos Lima Colossal Reserva Red 2016
|Brand||Casa Santos Lima|
With an intense ruby color, this wine has a great concentration on the nose. Extremely rich aroma with predominant notes of ripe red fruit and some floral notes, well integrated with the notes of spices from the French and American oak aging. In the mouth, it presents great complexity with notes of plum and blackberries, well integrated with ripe tannins. The finish is rich and elegant.
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.
