A wine made in homage to the father of the present directors of J.M. da Fonseca. This is a fascinating blend of Syrah, Trincadeira and Tannat. It is beautifully perfumed, with huge tannins and powerful intense fruit. This is a wine to cellar, but already its great, ripe fruit is delicious. This is a great wine, showing how good serious winemaking can be in the south of Portugal. Imported by Commonwealth Wine & Spirits Inc.
