This is a blend of Syrah and Alicante Bouschet, sourced from 15-year-old Portalegre vines at 550 meters in altitude. The best Reserva here yet, this is graceful and easy to approach, but its crisp demeanor and moderate tannins immediately give it some life and vitality. It puts on some weight and fleshes out in the glass. Then, the fine flavors come through on the lingering finish. It's pretty delicious, too, simply bursting with flavor. It improved notably over an hour or so in the glass. This relatively new venture (although its lauded winemaker - David Baverstock - is hardly an unknown) is rounding into form. There's a lot here to like.

  • Flavour

    Full body, soft and round tannins and a flavourful finish. Juicy and flavourful.

  • Aroma

    Lots of tar and wet-earth character. Dried fruit and berry undertones.

Lots of tar and wet-earth character. Dried fruit and berry undertones. Full body, soft and round tannins and a flavorful finish. Juicy and flavorful. Needs some time to soften.
