Tejo

The nose is fruity, struc­tured, el­e­gant and of­fers con­cen­tra­tion as well as a slight gour­man­dise. It re­veals notes of cas­sis jam, fleshy/juicy cherry and straw­berry as­so­ci­ated with hints of flint, crushed blue­berry as well as a sub­tle toasted hint/smoke and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of gray pep­per (in the back­ground). The palate is fruity, juicy, min­eral, well-bal­anced, racy, el­e­gant, struc­tured, straight, well-built and of­fers a beau­ti­ful min­eral frame, deep­ness as well as a slight ten­sion. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of juicy/fresh black­berry, crushed blue­berry and slight notes of cherry, fresh rasp­berry as­so­ci­ated with a sub­tle hint of toasted oak/ca­cao as well as a sub­tle hint of carameliza­tion and sweet spices. Tan­nins are sup­ple. A very beau­ti­ful wine, gour­mand and el­e­gant.
