Wine Review: This dark red colored Touriga Nacional from Portugal is very good. It opens with a black cherry-cola and black licorice bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black plum, black cherry and black tea blend with notes of vanilla, oak and a hint of blackberry. The finish is dry and its well-managed refined tannins drift away nicely. This very nice wine would pair well with a pot roast. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lovely floral essence of roses, reflecting the Touriga Nacional. Very well defined, fresh black fruit aromas with soft licorice and bergamot notes. Fleshy palate with ripples of expressive plum and black cherry flavors keep in step with superbly integrated peppery tannins. Well rendered, balanced structure with understated wood. Will develop magnificently in bottle.
