The wine is a rich blend of Baga and Touriga Nacional that is ripe and juicy with solid tannins and generous black fruits. There are firm tannins that will probably always be a part of the wine along with acidity and black plum richness. The wood aging has helped to smooth the wine on the way, while still promising further development. Drink from 2017.
