Inky black center with a rim of deep purple. The nose opens rich, ripe fruit with crisp red berry aromas blending with ripe, succulent black fruits. Eucalyptus and rock rose scents merge with hints of crushed mint, fresh citrus notes and a pot-pourri of savory herbs and dried rose petal. On the palate the wine is thick, dense and silky, packed with opulent fruit and supported by a mesh of tightly-woven tannins. This magnificent expression of the oldest vineyard plots at Quinta da Roêda showcases the old vines’ remarkable qualities and their ability to open doors on unexpected new dimensions of aroma.
