Wine Review: “From vineyards at 2000 feet elevation, this is a rich and spicy wine that has a pure streak of fruit freshness and a firmly tannic core. It is perfumed from Touriga Nacional in the blend, with red berry and black plum flavors coming through strongly along, balanced by acidity. It will be better from 2017.”
My Review: Garnet in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of spice, particularly oregano and dill, earthiness, and herbal.  Tastes of dill, with some astringency and tartness.
