The owners' Swiss connections are commemorated in the international initials for Switzerland (CH) on the label, but everything else about this wine is resolutely Portuguese. From its dense tannins and dry core to its bold red fruit, it's full bodied, rich, ripe and likely to age further. Drink from 2018.
