This maturing version of the Conde de Vimioso, reveals old-fashioned, tarry, licorice flavors that are well balanced and enjoyable. A blend of Trincadeira, Aragonês, Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon, it seems to be dominated by the first two, warm southern grapes, which give a generous, ripe character and a rich aftertaste.
