Color: Deep purple. Nose: Intense aromas of berry fruit well balanced with fresh notes of cocoa and delicate hints of violets. Palate: Elegant beginning leading to a well structured wine, with great volume and smooth, finely textured tannins. Everything is in perfect harmony with vibrant berry fruit flavours. Fresh and lingering finish.

Wine SpectatorVery plush, with concentrated dark plum, Asian spice and dark currant flavors that are creamy and rich-tasting. Medium-grained tannins on the long finish are filled with dark chocolate and black licorice notes. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2020. 15,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastComing from the Roquette family's newly acquired vineyards in the Douro Superior, this wine shows the great synergy between the region and the new wave of table wines. It has a smooth richness with ripe tannins and concentrated black fruits and rich wood-aging flavors. The wine is still at its fruity stage, so although it is drinkable now, it will be better from 2017.
