A powerful Portuguese Douro Red expertly and patiently created by world-famous Port producer, Messias.

The Messias Douro Reserva Tinto is an interesting wine. It is produced in the Douro Valley by Messias - a famous fortified wine producer. Their Port is sought after all over the world and is known for quality and passion. The same can be said for their Douro Reserva Tinto.

This complex wine boasts a full-bodied, bold experience. It delivers mature tannins that are complemented by a refreshing dryness and acidity. There is a slight sweetness to the wine, thanks to the grapes used, but only very slightly so - just enough to complement the acidity of the wine. To the eye: as is normal for red wines hailing from the Douro Valley, a beautiful inky purplish red is observed. It is mesmerizing, to say the least. On the nose: notes of alcohol, red berries, and a slight citrus can be observed. Notes of wood and nuts are also shared. On the palate: notes of strawberry, cherry, and plum are presented. This is accompanied by a slight oakiness, with hints of chocolate and tobacco. The wine is complex and has a long finish. Indeed, it presents a plethora of characteristics.

The Messias Douro Reserva Tinto is a wine that should be consumed slowly. This will allow all of the myriad characteristics to be observed. It does well from aeration so allow it to breathe generously before drinking.
