Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: BRONZE Medal at the 2003 DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS. SEAL of APPROVAL at the 2004 INTERNATIONAL WINES & SPIRITS COMPETITION. Rated with 87 Points by WINE ENTHUSIAST. "This oak-aged wine, a blend of Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is a successful balancing act between ripe acidity and cool-climate fruit.
