Description and Reviews:
The 1997 Smith Woodhouse has a lovely lively colour, just picked cherries in the nose and in the taste.
Dark red, 75% opaque. Nose of eucalyptus and red grape. Floral. Eucalyptus, and dark plum behind. Lovely with a long aftertaste.
A boutique artisan producer, Smith Woodhouse was founded in 1784 and acquired by the Symington family in 1970. Madalena, its small 25-acre vineyard, is located in the Rio Torto Valley, an area known for having the highest concentration of top quality vineyards in Portugal's Douro Valley. Smith Woodhouse Ports have outstanding length and structure, are drier than most, and age with an unmatched elegance.
