Colossal Reserva 2016


Producer: Casa Santos Lima
Country: Portugal
Region: Lisbon
Grape: Alicante Bouschet, Syrah/Shiraz, Tinta Roriz, Touriga

Made from a blend of Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Tinta Roria and Alicant Bouschet, this is vivid purple black in the glass with vibrant magenta edges. The bouquet is awash with dark plums, prunes, tar and polished oak and it is immediately seamless in the spicy, savoury, oaky, medium to full-bodied palate filled with succulent dark berry fruit and accents of baking spices and pepper. Terrifically tasty with lovely balance of fruit and savouriness and tannins more noticeable on the long dry finish.
