An enchanting blend of indigenous Portuguese varietals with a proportion of the more familiar Cabernet Sauvignon. Richly fruited, with juicy dark berries, a hint of spice and wild herbal notes, giving lift and freshness to the wine. An approachable and easy drinking style, with an elegant structure, firm well-balanced tannins and defined, refreshing acidity.
