Appearance: This blend is dark red, with crimson highlights. Aroma: An intense, mature red fruit nose, with hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese herb that has sweet, warm balsamic aromas with a hint of earthiness). Mouth Feel: The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied elegance, with mature, round tannins, leading to a long, persistent finish. Food Pairing: Serve at room temperature with light meat dishes, such as pork, or flavorful, hard cheeses, such as Italian cow and sheep's milk cheeses.
