A joint venture between the Bergqvists of Quinta de la Rosa and winemaker Jorge Moreiro in the Douro Superior has produced this impressive, deeply rich offering. It has firm tannins that are supported by blackberry and red plum flavors, with a piercing line of acidity. With its concentration, it needs at least four years in the cellar.
