Blend of touriga, pv, cab. Very sophisticated, with smooth and silky texture. Highly aromatic. Black cherry aromas and flavors.
Dark ruby red in color leading to a brilliant clear white. On the nose, this wine is a breath of pure deep red floral notes interlaced with rich ripe cherries, chocolate, roasted coffee and black pepper. Honestly, I'm having difficulty getting my nose to ease its way out of the glass. It's sexy and sensuous. Yet the wine speaks a completely different language on the palate. It's silky in texture but bites with its high acidity, right in corner of my mouth. Its that feeling I get when I smile for too long and that spot right where my jaw connects, aches. With a little time, the acidity relaxes and the fine tannins take charge, coating my tongue with a thin veil of bing cherries, rhubarb, black pepper and minerals. If I could choose a wine for Valentines Day, I would choose this. Paired with a grilled steak, red potatoes quartered and sauteed in rosemary butter and steamed asparagus, I would be a happy girl!
