This Reserva comes from the oldest vineyard on the Herdade Grande estate. With wood aging to smooth out the dense tannins, it's a solid, very structured wine that has power. It also has a stylish way about it, with neither the rich fruit nor the structure in excess. Age the wine and drink from 2016.
