The first wine made by Esporão in 1985. Made from estate grown grapes, shows the consistency and the rich, ripe fruit characters which are typical of the best Alentejo red wines. COLOUR Deep, dark red, opaque. AROMA Spicy red berry fruits with subtle oak complexity. PALATE Full bodied, textured palate, well structured tannins. Solid and dense with great potential for bottle maturation.

Wine EnthusiastFrom the heart of this large estate, this wine is powerful, structured and firm, with dense black plum and damson fruit. With the perfume of Aragonez and the structure of Alicante Bouschet, this fine wine still needs time to develop. Drink from 2019.

Wine SpectatorFocused and graceful, with concentration to the blackberry, anise, plum and mocha flavors. Spice and herb accents mingle with minerally details on the long, moderately tannic finish. Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022.
