Subtle philosopher makes a point after all. Pleasant if quaint. Nose is nearly absent, and tongue notes are elusive. Licorice dominates, with blackcurrant close behind. But it’s all very, very subtle. This wine might shine with the right pairing, but easily wilt with an overpowering dish. Drinks easy though, and disappeared fast among the party. A reminder that I don’t drink enough wines from Portugal, and have to correct that. Grapes in this blend are 35% Tinta Roriz, 30% Tinta Barroca, 20% Touriga Franca, 15% Touriga Nacional (per Vivino.)
