Good effort. Little too stewed for my taste. Fruit forward and new world fans should love this wine. Great wine for @Ted Corvey

A black fruit nose leads to a pallet of bramble, light cedar, and spices, closing with a superb mouthfeel of moderate tannins. A fine pairing to Italian fair. A nice addition to any collection.

My first Touriga. Potent red begging for bison prime rib. Not terribly complex, but powerful. If you don't like reds avoid this one. If you do, you'll find this one a surprising value.
