We’ve been drinking several 2010 of the same wine, which seemed not to have the same nose and taste of the 2008. Bummer. Regards.
(Tomamos vários 2010 deste mesmo vinho, que nos pareceu não possuir a mesmo aroma e sabor do 2008. Uma pena. Abraços.)

I agree Guilherme! Something seems to have changed in how they make this wine. A bummer indeed.

Eu concordo Guilherme! Algo parece ter mudado em como eles fazem este vinho. Um pena realmente.
