Dark violet color. Herbal aromas of stewed plums, mulberry, worn leather, and sweet gum tree with a velvety, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and an effortless, medium-length licorice and bay leaf finish with earthy tannins and light oak flavor. A lovely Portuguese red with bright fruit, balancing tannins, and lots of table appeal.

Red wines in Portugal are often made from the same varieties as those used in the production of Port, such as Touriga Nacional and Tinta Cao. The wines are deeply colored, quite ripe with black fruits, notes of chocolate and peppercorns, and balanced acidity. Prices range from value oriented to expensive, due to limited availability. Pair these reds with hearty foods such as stews, roast pork and pepper steak.
