Companhia das Lezírias winery has produced a complex, spicy red blend of four different red grape varietals: Merlot, Syrah, Tinta Amarela and Castelão. Tinta Amarela is commonly used in Port wine production and its wines tend to be full-bodied and rich, with aromas of blackberries, herbs and flowers. Castelão is often used in blends to help impart tannin structure and a rich, full-bodied texture.

The 2007 Catapereiro Escolha has a deep purple hue with aromas of ripe cherries and toasted oak. Its rich flavor is well structured with soft tannins and a lingering medium finish that is heightened with game, pork, and red meats.
