Quinta de Cabriz Dao Colheita Seleccionada 2008
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.).
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.
