A blend of Castelão (38%), Touriga Nacional (34%), Touriga Francesa (28%)
 
Smells a bit like Syrah, peppery, inky a bit olivy, and filled with briary blue and black fruit, spice notes and a late hint of vanilla. Pretty rich on entry with an attractive stemmy accent to the rich core of blueberry and raspberry fruit. Medium light body with supple if slightly astringent tannins keeping this nicely tense in the mouth, this remains a touch Inky on the palate though there is a nice innate sweetness to the wine. This offers a friendly blend of easy drinking and lightly earthy complexity. 87pts
 
 
A blend of Touriga Nacional (59%) and Syrah (41%)
 
Oaky on the nose and rather toasty with very earthy, clay like soil tones, hints of tobacco and a sweet almond top note.  Rich and round on entry and a bit dense on the palate, this shows some sweetness behind the flavors of blackberries, dried thyme and chocolate. There are some dry tannins on the palate and they clip the finish a bit though a touch of heat does also show on the finish. nose. A bit new world styled, chunky and a bit anonymous. 87pts
 
 
A blend of Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz
 
A bit sweet on the nose and showing a bit of reduction underneath the herb, briar flecked blackberry fruit, and dry soil aromas. Air cleans things up nicely revealing some blueberry fruit and a little brushy, dried herb, chaparral-like tone. Thi is super fresh in the mouth and packed with berry fruit that is taut and tight and a little youthfully harsh with high acid and angular little tannins in the mouth. There is so much fresh fruit here that you can ignore the edginess and appreciate this for what it is a tense, fruity, mouth-cleansing wine with good length. 87pts
 
 
A blend of Castelão (74%), Trincadeira (14%), Aragonez (12%)
 
A little smoky, earthy and vaguely mushroomy under briary almost black currant aromas with a little  black spice on top.  Lightweight on the palate but not without some tannin making for a lovely, easy drinking traditional table wine. There’s some nice raspberry fruit, a little spice, a little mineral, nothing out of place with an attractive edge of minerality and a slight astringency to the fairly long finish.  86pts

A blend of Baga and Touriga Nacional 50/50, Bairrada and Dao
 
Savory on the nose with rich aromas of fatty prosciutto, green anise seed, middle eastern spice, a lightly toasty nutty character and lots of rusty, wiry red fruit. Soft and opulent on entry, this is definitely rustic and chewy with lots of ripe tannins and fine acids supporting earthy, bitter cherry fruit, There’s something vaguely unripe here contributing to the astringent finish, which has a tarry, smoky character to it. 86pts
 
 
A blend of Castelão & Cabernet Sauvignon
 
Balsamic, raw and resinous on the nose with spicy, floral aromas that recall juniper topped with smoky and blueberry notes.  A touch soft on entry then raw with astringent red fruits on the midpalate which turns a touch a little creamy. This remains juicy and fresh in the mouth if a touch of sweetness does become obvious on the blueberry and blackberry tinged, slightly creamy finish. Easy to drink but not too simple. 85pts
