Previously available for $13.99
Imported by: Broadbent Selections SF 40% Tinta Roriz, 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Barroca, 10% Touriga Nacional A touch subdued on the nose though the aromas of vanilla, milk chocolate, dusty spices and dried cherries with a hint of espresso are both well balanced and very attractive. the nose gains lovely violet and plum aromas with a little bit or air. Smooth and subtle on the palate well with a touch of austerity reinforced with a nice drop of acid cut early on the palate followed by a silky, elegantly textured wine that shows off slightly dry flavors of dark berry fruit, spices and earthy, leathery undertones. Finishing with some tart cranberry notes that refresh the palate, this is a wine that could very easily get lost in a tasting but would shine at the dinner table with some coffee rubbed pork or pork with romesco sauce. This has some really attractive purity to it on the palate. 88pts

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Old fashioned for sure, and an everyday value for those of us who cut our teeth on old fashioned wines when they were just in fashion! I love wines like these and find them with some frequency in Portugal, a land of undiscovered values!
