Natalie's Score: 92/100
A full-bodied, generous red wine with mocha and toasty oak on the nose. Black plum and raspberry with dark spices. Good finish on this D.O.C. wine. There's been a revolution in dry red wines from Portugal: try this one and you'll know what I'm talking about. This particular wine hails from a well-known producer of port, the fortified dessert wine. The Touriga Nacional grape offers signature black fruit aromas and richness. Loaded with toasty oak and tarry black fruit with a bitter bite. Decant 1 hour.
Touriga Nacional food pairings: pizza.

Reviews and Ratings
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful, rich dark wine with aromas of blackberry, mint, smoke, and a touch of mocha. The taste follows in the rich style with blackberry and black cherry, nice acidity and velvety tannins. A great value, and fantastic for sipping, with pizza, or with a nice rare steak.
|This wine made from 100% Touriga Nacional grapes was matured for 12 months in oak casks. Great with game meats. - Community Wine Reviews|
