Wine Critic Reviews:

...45% Touriga Nacional, 20% Tinta Roriz, 10% Jaen and the rest an old vines field blend. The first impression here is oak, a touch of licorice and vanilla. Steely notes, good acidity and the fruit continuously pop up. It has a feeling of grace and elegance despite its underlying power, a beautifully constructed mid-palate and the promise of harmony to come. This is a powerful yet balanced wine built for the long haul with a serious backbone and fine acidity. Drink 2013-2028... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country Portugal: In many ways, Portuguese wine is the result of various cultural incursions and different traditions being brought to the region. It's a melting pot of ideas and styles, and this is perfectly reflected in the wines themselves. Portugal is home to an incredible number of unique varietals, which makes each wine that much more exciting and irreplicable. Visiting Portugal is one of the most enlightening parts of an individual's life-long wine journey, and some would say the region is still underappreciated. Open your mind to Portugal's wines and expand your horizons. Make sure to save a bottle or two for your friends!
