Flagship field blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira.
Medium deep true red, youthful colour. Dark slate, salted licorice nose with fresh forest floor, cured meat and some wild herbs. Deep, dark berry fruit with great density lurking beneath. Beguiling, complex and lifted with a balsamic aspect. Very full palate with richness of fruit cut by the firm, but yielding tannins. Really starting to open up after many years behind closed doors. Long finish with dark fruit aspect lingering right to the end. Drink 2018 to 2028. Ideal with venison, mushroom risotto or beef short ribs.
