DFJ is one of a few producers who grow Caladoc, which is here blended with Tinta Roriz. A cross between Grenache and Malbec, it gives a dark colored, structured wine that is shown well here. Berry fruits come through the texture strongly, giving a rich character and plenty of final acidity. Drink now.
