Winemaker's Notes

Intense vibrant Violet. Lifted aromas of fresh red forests fruits, very well integrated with elegant flowery notes. Elegant and fresh approach, with upfront fruits leading to a solid structure with fine, round and evolving tannins. Finishes very pleasant, persistent, with fresh aromatic notes of ripe wild berries fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"From one of the Douro’s greatest producers and a melange of indigenous varieties, this is dense and herb-infused, with dark fruit and an appealing wild streak. It is lifted on the palate with red fruits making an appearance, bolstered by notes of spice, charcoal and minerals. "

Great wine for the price. Region that provides the world with the best Port, also produces some excellent table wines and this one is a fantastic example. This wine is a pitch dark purple which for me is a great sign of a fine Portuguese red, red fruits with a bit of spice at the finish. Bold yet supple. Tough to classify but if your looking for a wine that is a bit different, this is a great place to start.

What a surprise. A perfectly round and fruit forward wine from Portugal. Not that familiar with the region but loved this wine.
