In case you were wondering, Touriga Nacional is one of the main grapes used in making Port. Technically, the winery is not supposed to have the word "Touriga Nacional" printed on label according to EU law (for now, it's "administratively approved" by our own TTB bureaucracy, however--sorry, EU!). And it is extremely rare for a winery outside of Portugal to even plant this varietal. In any case, this wine is quite a treat, a combination of blackberry, blueberry and floral violets bursts out of the glass followed by hints of earth and a lively mouthfeel and finish with some soft, mocha notes. It was quite a unique experience, worth a try for sure!
