100% Touriga Nacional aged in French oak for 12 months and an additional 12 months in bottle before release. A dense dark purple color with a big nose of ripe black fruit, spice, cassis, and blackberry jam. Dry, medium bodied, med tannins with a slight rough texture, bright acidity, medium + alcohol (14%), and medium plus finish. The palate is full of jammy ripe dark fruit and not much else. This is a new world style red that should be a crowd pleaser for folks who like coca cola wines. If your looking for complexity and an old world hand in winemaking your barking up the wrong vine. In my opinion this wine was terribly one dimensional and boring unless you like tons of ripe fruit. There's a good reason why 90% of Touriga Nacional is blended with other varietals, though made well this wine is definitely lacking a soul. 1.5/5
