The wine presents beautiful light amber hues. The nose id powerful and ripe, marked by black fruits and a touch of dark chocolate. The toasty vanilla notes obtained from the barrels are elegant and fine, offering a perfect balance with the fruit of the wine. The mouth is rich, concentrated, warm and mellow finishing on gentle tannins.
"This Lafite-owned venture in the south of Portugal has turned out a round, softly fruity wine dominated by chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. A blend of Aragonês, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, Castelão, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah." Best of the Year 2005 - Wine Enthusiast
