Tasting Notes

Deep ruby color. Distinctive aroma of Touriga Nacional grape, floral hint of violet and bergamot, ripe blackcurrant combined with the elegance of Allier oak. Robust yet smooth tannins, perfectly complemented by berry fruit flavours with great balance and complexity.Goes well with game, spicy roasted red meat.
