I do not recommend pairing this fortified of Messias with meat. I drank it with a connoisseur of wines.
It has a very nice colour. Taste of blackberries and wild fruits.

3/5

The Messias Colheita 2005 had a very deep color. I drank it several day after I first opened it and, even though the days, it tasted good.
It would have been better with meat.
This wine was recommended by a friends of us.
I always ask for it when I go to the restaurant.
A classic.
