Wine Review: This dark cherry colored wine opens with a cherry and raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is balanced, juicy, and displays tasty raspberry and cherry like flavors with a hint of pepper. The finish is dry and its managed tannins linger nicely. This reasonably priced wine will pair nicely with chicken parmigianna. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Purple coloured. Intense violet and ripe blackcurrant aromas from the Touriga Nacional, matched with typical Cabernet Sauvignon spices and the complexity given by the ageing oak. Balanced, round, and persistent in body, with a harmonious affinity with wood. Intense and very persistent.
