Ellen scored this wine: 88/100

A hit if you are ready for something different. I found out that is was from 100% Braga vines (Northern Portugal) gives the wine a fresh cherries and. mineral taste, a bit bitter in the finish but pleasant. Dried berries and plum and sweet spices, sort of tart oak and olives!
