Cherries and violets on the nose. Nice acid, cherries, and cocoa hit the front of the palate. Chocolate and leather notes intensify as it flows across the tongue, with woody notes shored up by powerful tannins. The finish is long and chewy, and you’ll feel and taste the red fruits in your jaws as you swallow. Herbal and earthy notes linger after the finish. A nice red, worthy of the Portuguese label.
