The Sunday Times, February 2021: "Produced by the former wine consultant João Portugal Ramos, this is an exceptional blend of syrah and trincadeira from Alentejo. Packed with luscious red fruit and lively floral notes, it finishes long, dry and savoury." The Daily Record, April 2021: "With so many top-class local grapes, Portugal uses international varieties sparingly. Tempranillo (called tinta roriz there) is an exception but, otherwise, those familiar varieties often become, at best, simply minor blending partners. Here, though, a syrah from Alentejo is allowed out on its own. Ripe and floral, it contains cherry, plum and loganberry flavours supplemented by firm tannin and good acidity with suggestions of menthol, chocolate and baking spice."
