Quinta da Bica Reserva 2004

16.5 / 20
Producer: Quinta da Bica
Region: Dão
Country: Portugal

This red from the Dão comes from a small producer near the Serra da Estrela. Dark ruby to the eye, without any trace of evolution, the nose is marked at first by vanilla notes and flowers along with some more mineral, silex-like notes. Warm and intense, it later shows some cocoa and coffee and, still later, some meaty red fruit also joins this nice and balanced bouquet.

It shows a slightly more fruit-forward body, with an average structure, balanced acidity and a nice overall dryness. Some lively tannins give it some strength, but overall this is a balanced, velvety wine with a nice finish that brings to mind more red fruits and mineral notes.
