Nearly opaque dark bright dusty color. Bright, fruity, minerally toasty rustic aromas of black currants, molten plastic bitumen (tar), granitic minerality, and pink peppercorns with a lively, dry full body and a peppery, complex finish with firm, grippy tannins and moderate oak.

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.
