2012 Touriga Nacional Angelica

Tasting Notes:
Dark red in color with a fresh, vibrant aroma of plums, black currants, cedar and fine brandy which follows through on the palate along with some juicy black cherry, figs and dates. This vintage Angelica has a long sweet finish of strawberry and cherry. In Portugal, Touriga Nacional is considered by many to be Portugal’s finest varietal, and we are inclined to agree. Drink now through 2050.
