Full-bodied, blackcurrant, bold and gravelly tannins. It’s still young but got the potential to age really well.

Black currant on nose and taste with cherries hint of cocoa great length. Very subtle tannins. 1-2 more bottles drink over next 2 years.

Too much heat. Flavorful. Worth a glass or less.

100% Touriga, deep and jammy but still young. Needs a few more years to fully develop.

Something nice. Minerality and a little (nice) funk. Recommend if you're into that thing.

This is a very nice red. Quite young. Needs to mature for at least 5 more years. Decant and let set for 4-6 hours if you drink now.
