Wine Review: This dark ruby colored blend from Portugal opens with a black cherry, oak and olive bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and black cherry blend with notes of gentle plum, faint oak and minerality. The finish is dry and its medium tannins are a bit sticky, but managed. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with a prime rib. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Deep, dark red, opaque. Aroma: Spicy red berry fruits with subtle oak complexity. Palate: Full bodied, textured palate, well-structured tannins. Solid and dense with great potential for bottle maturation.
