Post by AHB » 08:20 Fri 06 Sep 2013

55% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 10% very old mixed vines, 5% Sousao. Sourced from Quinta dos Canais (80%), Quinta do Vale Coelho (15%), Quinta do Cachao de Arnozelo (5%).

Vivid purple. A nutty edge to the bright fruit nose. Sweet, soft entry with elegant fruit. The tannins are hidden behind the purity of the sweet blackcurrant. Delicious aftertaste tingling with black pepper and sweet blackcurrant cordial. Very elegant. 92-94. Pop 'n' pour. 4 Sep 2013.
