Herdade do Mouchão 2014 Ponte das Canas Tinto

There is more development here, with a good aromatic complexity of black fruit supported by coffee and black pepper notes. As with all the upper level reds, a little decanting will do wonders here, as the wine has enough liveliness and freshness to support the air. The least typical of Mouchão’s reds, since it derives from relatively young plantations of varieties that might be considered “foreign”, even when Portoguese!

Notes from the Producer: Intense ruby red. It shows a great aromatic complexity with hints of black fruits involved by coffee, black pepper, and quality oak barrel notes.
On the palate it´s lively and full bodied with vibrant acidity that support the silky tannins. Long finish that will backbone a good aging potential for the next years.
