TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Messias Ruby has a ruby red colour.
  • Nose: Gentle aromas of ripe red fruits go along with floral scents to complete the bouquet.
  • Mouth: Delicate and sweet on the palate, with nice fruity and spicy notes. Pleasant, simple, and dry, with a sweet aftertaste splashed with cherry.

APPELLATION: Port

VINEYARD: Caves Messias. Established in 1926, this family-owned business is notorious for producing fantastic wines from the main regions in Portugal: Bairrada, Douro, Dão, Vinho Verde, Beiras and Vinho do Porto.

GRAPES: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, and Tinto Cão.
