Average price: $19.55 from 15 stores
Dark and fruity on the nose with luscious dark chocolate accents and lovely smoke, dried herb and toasted spice top notes. This enters the mouth with a certain elegance, delivering rich fruit flavors that are fresh and precise with layers of leather, dried herb and mineral accents adding complexity. The tannins here are ripe and polished, making this quite smooth with enough acidity to keep things perky. The finish is long and complex with tobacco, chocolate and spice notes. A touch of black pepper accents the wild plum and dried cherry fruit. This is lovely and well put together with a slightly modern feel, but the flavors are firmly rooted in the Old World. This should continue to improve in the cellar for another 2-5 years. 91pts

  • 342828boccaccio Another great and under appreciated wines. Great with Beef. It is a must in the cellar.


  • 342828boccaccio A great little winery to visit in Portugal. They have a small B&B and you can dinner is available upon request. The grapes are foot stomped not machine crushed. Take your time to enjoy the wine and the view from the patio. It lives up to the 4 glass rating.
