50% opaque red juice. Full rich port with liquorice and chocolate notes. Spicy finish. Discernibly related to the Vargellas 1995 tasted alongside but, also, discernibly the better wine. My first taste of TVVV! Tasted blind at B&F 9 January 2020. Courtesy CPR.

50% opacity, dull red. Red fruits, cranberries. Gentle heat and tannin along the palate. Dusty fruit, cranberries. Chewy.
