The Esporao Assobio Douro begins with very pleasant aromas of black cherry, blueberry, raspberry, a little leather and a little spice. Tasting the medium-bodied wine reveals rich and juicy dark fruit along with very well integrated spice. This is quite simply an extremely tasty wine with very good balance and complexity. It ends dry and long with firm tannins and lots of long lasting spice plus more tart and juicy dark fruit. A perfect example of why Portugal is a fabulous region for Reverse Wine Snobs!
