WineDiva's Review

Levity, complexity, singular.
One of Portugal's darling varieties, Touriga is a rare find outside of the Iberian borders.
Moon Curser's version outstanding; sour cherries and rhubarb, sweet and savoury spices, strawberry compote and tealeaf, leather and iodine aromas dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy yet supple and classic. A delicious red with good persistent and lingering white pepper on the finish.
