This is the latest vintage from the always impressive long-running joint venture between the Symington family in Portugal and Bordeaux wine consultant Bruno Prats. The wine is elegant and structured with nothing to excess. It has delicious black-currant fruit as well as a core of firm tannins. It is a wine for aging: ripe while so poised. Drink from 2020.
