Natalie's Score: 88/100

Full-bodied and pleasant with blackened fruit and smoky aromas on the nose of this Portuguese red wine. Tannic but will smooth out with 2 hours decanting. Pair with grilled meats.

Tinto food pairings: herbed steaks, portobello mushroom, lamb chops, smoked cheese, pan-seared venison.
