    Winemaker's Notes:

    #42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    Blend of Alfrocheiro (early ripening Dão grape with good color, rich tannin, and balance of strawberry-like fruit and acidity), Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo in Spain, an early ripening varietal which produces good yields and flavors reminiscent of red fruits, plums, strawberries and blackberries. It has firm tannins and responds well to oak aging) and Touriga Nacional (One of Portugal's signature grapes, indigenous to the Dão. It has firm, rich color and complex aromas of raspberries, ripe blackcurrants, savory herbs, violets and licorice.).

    Critical Acclaim:

    A well-structured, muscular red, with a touch of Asian spice to the wild plum and dried raspberry flavors. Beef and mineral notes mark the finish. Distinctive, with a very sauvage allure. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases imported.

    Wonderful wine, had it once with braised beef, another time just sipping late at night with chocolate. Strong dark fruit flavors, but delivered very smoothly, with a nice finish.

    Bought this online for $9.99 mostly out of curiousity. Rated 90 points by WS & #42 in Wine Spector's Top 100 of 2011. I'm not very familiar with Portuguese wine so I thought it would be a nice bottle to try. Red blend: Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz & Touriga Naciona grapes. I brought it to a Christmas party to share. Opened up the bottle to let it breath for about 1 hour prior to pouring (as was suggested). Dark ruby color, medium bodied with nice red/black fruit with well balanced tannins. I enjoyed this wine. Great for price point.

    Sort of thin with not much behind a solid tannin. Not my style.
