|Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A lovely expression of the Portuguese grape Touriga Nacional blended with Tinta Roriz.(Tempranillo). Still showing youthful deep purple colour in the glass. Aromas tell a more developing story. Raspberry,strawberry,cassis,cherry,violet,cedar,toast, black earth,and tobacco leaf. Full bodied in the mouth with flavours leading to dried red fruit,sour cherry, cloves,leather,wet leaves,tobacco, vanilla. Velvet tannins. Long length on a smooth warming finish.
This developing wine is lovely now and should be enjoyed over the next 3 yrs.
Pair with BBQ meats, game, charcuterie
