Tinta Roriz,Touriga Franca,Touriga Nacional
Black as ink, with purple reflections. The nose, exotic and intoxicating, abounds in flower essences and the woods that contrast with a background of rich fruit and delicious. Resinous aromas of eucalyptus and rock rose flower, combined with herbaceous notes of wild lavender and mint. The palate is full and round, full of plums, cherries and cassis compote. The tannins, well integrated, remain discrete average in taste but emerge to give attractive claw over, delicious and fruity end.

This vintage can be enjoyed by itself but it goes equally well with full cheeses and chocolate or red fruit deserts. A strong cigar can also be the ideal accompainment.
