Very deep intense purple colour. Attractive, intense, ripe, plum-black-cherry nose with cedary mo and a hint of mocha-chocolate. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, fairly dense, gently spicy, ripe, attractive, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, cedary, faint dark chocolate-tinged, harmonious finish. This well-made, ready-to-drink, blend of Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet and Touriga Franca has 14.5% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with lot number L202206 on the lower part of the glass bottle. The grapes were mechanically harvested during the night and fermented temperature controlled stainless steel vats where it went through full malolactic fermentation in French 400 L oak barrels follpwed my 9 months of barrel aging.

TASTING NOTE: The \"oeologist's\" choice, made from alicante bouschet blended with the two tourigas in the silky smooth way of the modern Alentejo. Liquid peppery piques and fruit valleys, surprisingly aromatic, a mineral and floral mix, charcoal and violets, plenty of immediate engagement. Stylish and chic, still with good beating heart acids and a finish that's got meaty beefiness, a burger with brisket and beef heart, hot off the grill. Drink 2023-2026. Tasted April 2022.
