The bottle says it is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, and Tinta Roriz. 13% abv Some cassis and eucalypt on the nose, but also some savoury overtones. This has opened up in the glass over a couple of hours. It's really quite gentle on the front palate. There is no big fruit here, and it is initially subtle with a hint of black tea, then some olive coming through with a wisp of licorice. The tannins build from mid palate on to provide some good length on the finish. I probably should have given this a couple more hours in the decanter, but it has proven to be highly satisfying none the less.
Portuguese Reds (Sydney): Colour: Medium intensity ruby, clear with tears Nose: Clean, medium intensity developing wit with aromas of jammy red fruit including strawberries, cherry and raspberry. Mouth: Medium plus acid, medium plus tannin, jammy generic red berry and cherry fruit, slight oak, slight tannic grip. The wine finishes a little bitter.
