Grand'Arte is the top range from DFJ Vinhos, highlighting wines that express the individual varieties. Labeled Shiraz rather than Syrah, this is a powerful, spicy, rich wine. Solid tannins and dark black fruits are layered with acidity and ripe plums. With its structure, it will age well for a value-priced wine; drink from 2017.
