Touriga Nacional is getting much attention now that Bordeaux has adopted it officially into their blends. Combined with equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and you have a super-dense dark preview of what could become the world’s next sought-after wine. Inspired by Markus’s 2016 cruise of the Douro River, this new bottling takes its place in our lineup as our biggest and most-intense red.

Dry and nicely-structured, you’ll discover delicious black fruits – particularly dark berries and dried black plums – along with licorice spice and a hint of tar on top of some oak, which combine for a weighty mouthfeel. Those flavors last long, enticing you to drink more than your share.
