Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Touriga Nacional from Portugal opens with a fragrant blackberry and oak bouquet with hints of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious mild plum with notes of mild minerality and old oak with hints cherry. The finish is dry and it flavors and fine tannins drift away nicely. This wine is showing well now and it would pair perfectly with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: With a dark crimson color, this Touriga Nacional boasts great concentration and aromas of bergamot and wild fruits, with violet and spicy hints. The taste is elegant, round and mature, with silky tannins. Red fruits follow through from the nose into a long, concentrated, fresh finish.
