  • Mature at this point, low fruit. Balanced, well made and a good pleasure. Not to complex, but very good.

  • Consumed over two nights, about a third the first night and then with help the rest on the second. The cork had a moldy residue on the top and sides, which had me worried, and the wine was a little sharp with possible VA at first opening, but that settled down and the wine drank a bit like a cab and a bit like... well, whatever else is in this. It's cab, aragonez (a Portugese name for tempranillo) and trincadeiro, I think. Which I've never had on its own, but I'm guessing it adds a bit of acid, because that's what made this neither cab nor temp. It really juiced up with time, getting bigger by the hour. No signs that it was pulling back, so maybe it has some long term potential. At these ridiculously low prices for Portugese reds, that's an attractive experiment. BTW, there's no information in English on this wine on the company's website. Not a US-designed wine.

  • Rubi profundo. Aromas de frutas e algo de vegetal. Encorpado, taninos firmes e equilibrado. Final médio e agradável.

  • Popped and poured very nicely. Actually I like the delineation upon opening. Dark berry and plummy with herbs, flowers, olive, and mineral. Quite Southern Rhone-like but with a different mineral profile. Mineral is more similar to many Spanish reds than most Portugese reds that I know. Hot but has enough substance to not be problematic. Quite good and complex and an excellent value for a well-made big boy.
