Natalie's Score: 88/100

Chalky dry and full-bodied with mocha-dark chocolate from the oak aging on the nose. Full-bodied and smooth with layers of dark fruit. Great price.

Food pairings: cocoa-marinated steaks, burritos with beef and black beans.

The blend here is Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) along with the great Port grapes Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional. Rich aromas of raspberry, plum, cedar, dark chocolate and vanilla are joined by a touch of minerality. In the mouth the wine is round with a medium-full body, fine tannins and delicious fulfillment of the promise of the nose. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.
