Dense purple in color. Black olive and red fruit notes in nose. Berry cherry and olive notes in mouth, with fine mouth coating seed tannins initially. Needs time to open, cherry notes with plum finish replace the tannins with a bit of aeration. Decent table red

Very nice Portuguese wine. Berries bouquet and some fruit. Still had quite tannins after two hours. Went very well with barbecue meat.

Smooth, not over-powering. Perfect for sitting on the deck in the sun and grilling.

A wonderfully priced Portuguese wine with some awesome spiced fruit on the front. Complimented our venison steaks perfectly with a touch of earthy and I can see it complimenting many dishes.
