This is really, really good. Beautifully crafted; we were blown away by the lightness of touch and incredible balance that keeps the big fruit flavours of this wine in check giving a full-bodied wine that feels like it could do a pirouhette. Rich in body, smooth in texture, with concentrated, oak-spiced dark fruits on the nose and palate and subtle herbal and floral (violets) notes. Ripe and powerful but well-rounded and supple. The cab gives it some freshness in the mid-palate, but you can still get a sense of the other two varieties - the herbal, liquorice notes of the Touriga, the inky depth and spiciness of the Aragonez. Generous, mouth-filling with a long, long finish.
