Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine from Portugal opens with a black cherry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum and gentle oak blend with notes of mild minerality. I also detected a hint of black cherry and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a very long time. I would pair this wine with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Deep, dark red, opaque centre. Aroma: Focused dark berry fruits with toasty notes. Palate: Full bodied, textured palate, well structured tannins. Solid and dense with great potential for bottle maturation. Ideal Consumption Date: 2016-2022
