Named after the terraces (Patamares) on which the vines are planted in the Douro, the wine is a classic blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. Firmly structured and still young, the wine is rich with blackberry and black plum skin flavors. There is a dry core that will soften. Drink from 2017.
