Burrata, roasted garlic, garden cherry tomatoes, olive oil, pesto and Tondo balsamic with chopped pistachios for texture. The nose is showing; candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight herbaceousness, beautiful, saline notes, delicate chalk and sandstone minerality. The palate palate rushes in juicy, lush and then slides in chalky powder with a slightly waxiness character & near tannin presence. You definitely sense this is made from a hearty grape varietal, like Touriga Nacional. It has beautiful viscosity. rushing cool river acidity. Candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight, fresh herbaceousness, saline notes, beautiful, delicate chalk, sandstone & gripping limestone/volcanic minerality. The finish is refreshing, nicely balanced and smartly polished. I was curious about their Rosé and wanted to try it. However, it will benefit with another one to two years in bottle.

This did not suck. Ever lick a battery, then lick it again? I'm not sure what that has to do with this wine. But it was super refreshing, slightly tannic and gone in a flash. ⚡

Brilliant California Rose’ made with native Portuguese varietals. Blend of Touriga National (80%) and Tinta Cao (20%). Aromas and flavors of Watermelon (like Jolly Ranchers without the sweetness), lemon rind and rose petals. Touches of dark raspberries and a Real purity of fruit. Hint of vanilla and saline with a bit of a creamy finish. Wonderful consistency all through the pallet. Beautiful balance. Clean with just the right level of bright acidity. Winner!

Distinctive and yummy. Clear line of juicy acid through plump late summer and autumn fruit. Lemon oil and zest, white cherry, blood orange, membrio, underripe fig. Toothsome candied texture.

Strawberry shortcake, vanilla custard, cherry filling, smoke, mineral deposits, sea salt. Delicious accompaniment to a hot Texas evening.
