Grapes: TOURIGA NACIONAL, TOURIGA FRANCESA OG TINTA RORIZ.

Color: Very dark red, violet, black,deep.

Nose: Concentrated ripe black cherry, black plum going on prune, almonds, almost marsipan, some syrup beef stock, hazelnuts and some walnuts, mocca, black pepper, slightly of violet or rose flowers.

Palate: Full to big body, very good fruit,concentration, quite a lot of tannins but they are smooth and fine, the tannins gives the wine a good structure for many years of aging, smooth and nice yet powerful, good balancing acidity. Long yet firm finish, with nice acidity.

Foodmatch: Powerful game with fruitbased rich sauces, fat chocolate desserts, strong cheese, stilton, peppersteak with portsauce.

Cellaring: Since this is a traditional LBV port, which means it is not filtered, it will age good for 0-20 years. I believe it has the structure for this. Maybe better if the wine had a little more acidity, but the quite mouthfull of tannins camouflage the acidity in this wines early stage I think.

Super value santa cheers rendeer Very Happy Laughing
