Natalie's Score: 91/100

A savoury, full-bodied red blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Alicante Bouschet grapes produced by winemakers, Nuno Franco and Alexandre Relvas. Fresh dark fruit on the nose, smoky with dried herb aromas. Would benefit from about three years cellaring. Decant two hours prior to pouring with grilled game sausages.

Food pairings: vegetarian lasagne, veal parmesan, roast chicken.
