Quinta Das Carvalhas, Reserva 2017, Douro, Portugal

Tasting Note: The sort of concentrated, ripe, black-fruit blend that is the perfect cold-weather comfort wine and also a wine to enjoy with grilled meats.

Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, red cherry, blackberry, bramble, raspberry puree, clove baking spice and violet with hints of fig.

On the palate the dry, full-bodied red blend has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, slightly-grippy, medium-plus tannin.

The wine is creamy in texture with midpalate complexity that completes with a medium-plush finish.

The sort of wine that will make you search out reds from Portugal whenever you visit the wine store.

Bottle Note: 60% Touriga Nacional, 20% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz. 12 months in oak barrels. Serve with strong dishes and game. 18°C/64°F.
