Winemaker's Notes

Very dark, opaque. Lifted floral aromas on the nose. Combination of floral notes and "esteva" with spicy peppery undertones. Very powerful and rich with tightly packed layers of ripe berry fruit flavors on the palate which provide a persistent, very long aftertaste, also suggesting hints of dark chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

"Enjoyable ripe fruit and earthy components. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely ripe tannins. Finish goes on and on. Best after 2010. 3,700 cases made."
91 Points

"Spicy scents of esteva and black, schisty tannins give this wine impressive clarity. There's a rich core of fruit in the middle, just the right weight to balance the heat of the alcohol. That plummy fruit tastes pure and fresh, and should age with finesse. Drink 2018-'28. "
91 Points

"A fine, foursquare wine from one of the Symington-owned Port houses. It shows good tannins, delicious perfumed fruit and great ripeness. Along with this attractive fruit, there is an impressive streak of dry tannins which promise good aging."
