A star among dry Douro wines, the 2003 Quinta do Vale Meão boasts a deep, intense bouquet of ripe grapes, spring flowers and anise-like spice. Plum, spice and vanilla flavors flow seamlessly across the palate, weighty yet never heavy, with a creamy texture. Long, lush and vibrant on the finish, with a hint of French roast coffee.
