Decent value wine. Very earthy and herbal flavors. Really high acidity at the beginning with tannins coming in shortly after. I let it sit for a bit and the dramatic acid/tannin was more subdued.

Love Portuguese and Spanish red blends. Good spice and tannins. Such a fascinating nose upon opening. I would buy this again.

A dark purple colour, slightly tight vegetal nose hinting at blackberries and wet clay. The palate is extremely smooth, breathing notes of chocolate, blackberry, dark plum and leather. The tannins are very well integrated and the wine has lovely and unique characteristics made from less well known grapes including Grand Noir, Trincadeira and Aragonez. The wine was partially fermented in clay pots and then aged in new French oak. A really interesting buy if you love a deep, rich, smooth and mellow red. Paired perfectly with grilled burgers. A steal at $16.
