A ruby red core, with a vibrant and clear ruby at the edge.  The nose is complex, dense and persistent with primary red and dark red fruit notes, subtle spices, as well as earth and minerality notes deepening the complexity.  Not a powerhouse, but a perfect reflection of the wines Luis makes that texturally remind me of the Northern Rhone, Burgundy and even Barolo to an extent.  There is an elegance to these wines akin to those regions, with a core of terroir and structure.  A supremely cerebral vigneron wine that makes you think while enjoying it.

With the arrival of Luis Seabra and his own line of wines, he is taking Portugal wines to the next level.  The wines from Luis Seabra are generating the most buzz of any producer out of the Douro Valley, with both red and white wine at all price levels there is something for everyone!

Very dark in color. Nose mostly of mineral with little fruit. Red fruit on the palate-strawberry, raspberry and cherry. The acid mineral skeleton sets off the fruit. A well defined presentation. ABV 12.5%. Luis Seabra makes some of the most interesting wines coming from the Iberian Peninsula. 4*
