Tried the Tons de Duorum from the same vintage and same winery in this video. Check it out to see whether I thought it was TONS better… (did you see what I did then?)

Has the heady juicy violet-scented fresh berry and blackcurrant character of a port Quinta at vintage time, along with earthy, chocolatey notes – I like those bits, but I find the finish just a bit ‘forced’, as if someone knew how to make wine, but didn’t know when to stop… B+
