Imported by: Wine Enterprises LLC NJ Touriga Nacional, Castelao, Tinta Roriz, Trincadeira Juicy and dark on the nose with aromas of moist tobacco, vanilla, a hint of dried fruit, some stemmy herbal notions with hints of old wood and blue plum skins. A bit rich on entry, this sorts itself out quickly in the mouth with lovely bright integrated acids and ripe, polished tannins perfectly woven into the fabric of the plummy, boysenberry fruit. A bit on the lighter bodied side, this is super easy drinking with a bit of blueberry emerging on the backend which is silky with just a hint of bitter chocolate and some dusty tannins emerging on the modest finish. The finish gains length pretty quickly with peppery hints complementing the bitter cocoa notes and dark cherry fruit. This is delicious and simply a pleasure to drink. 90pts

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Old fashioned for sure, and an everyday value for those of us who cut our teeth on old fashioned wines when they were just in fashion! I love wines like these and find them with some frequency in Portugal, a land of undiscovered values!
