Tasting Notes: A deep, dark red color with a violet rim.  A vivid nose and palate have a spicy spike under a sappy cassis, sour cherry and wild berry fruit. Showing a creamy softness and mature tannins, without loosing the brilliant acidity with its backbone of granite minerality, this wine has become a new classic among Portuguese wines. 

Gastronomic suggestions: Accompanies Portuguese traditional dishes, as well as Italian, Indian, Thai or any kind of spicy cuisine..
