Alcohol/vol 14%
A rich and powerful red with astonishing roundness of tannins. On the nose the fruit is upfront with notes of plum, blackcurrant and a touch of mocha and dark chocolate. The wood is perfectly integrated. The silky and velvety tannins are followed by a very fresh and long aftertaste. A seductive wine even at this early stage with a great ageing potential.

An impressive red that shows finesse to the generous profile of cherry tart, red plum and raspberry gelée notes, cast with licorice, Earl Grey tea, pepper and graphite details. Aromas of violet and mocha echo on the tannic finish. Needs a few years in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2031. 2,000 cases made, 250 cases imported.

Based on the magnificent Quinta de Roriz, this wine is a joint venture between the French Prats family and the Portuguese Symingtons. What has now become an icon wine is made with a nod to Bordeaux, richly structured while also elegant and layering tannins and fruit. It is obviously a wine to age, so wait until 2023.
