Made from a selection of the best parcels in the Cortes de Cima vineyard, this is a heady blend of raisins, dark plums and firm, dark tannins. It layers superripe, almost sweet, concentrated flavors along with a core of dryness that stops the wine being too jammy, and gives it a splendid structure. A blend of Syrah, Aragonez and Touriga Nacional.
