Passagem Wines Reserve Red 2011
It is very interesting to compare the two different terroirs and regions of the Douro. The wines from la Rosa have a greater minerality whilst the Douro Superior produces fruitier, aromatic, more expressive wines. Jorge successfully manages to keep the freshness and balance in these.
Elegant and subtle aromas with notes of violet, bergamot and plum. A true explosion of flavours on the palate with attractive black fruit followed by citric undertones which gives a good fresh balance and length. This is a serious, yet at the same time amusing wine.
Wine SpectatorA sumptuous and luscious red, with a briary character to the rich dark and red fruit flavors, layered with savory and minerally notes. Medium-grained tannins emerge on the supple finish, accented by cream and cocoa powder details. Drink now through 2020. 750 cases made.
