A beautiful nose of violets, rose and black pepper with enticing strawberry and musky earth. This well priced Dao blended from indigenous varietals Touriga Nacional, Aragonez and Jaen is fleshy and deliciously balanced. Medium to full-bodied, this would pair wonderfully with beef or lamb stews or grilled pepper crusted steak. Score: 88 (Sara d'Amato, www.WineAlign.com, Aug 2012)
