Quote – “A wine that is ripe with a firmly tannic edge as well as rich black fruits. Juicy acidity and black fruits come from the eclectic blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Merlot, and Syrah. The wine is still young although with its fruitiness it is ready to drink” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
