6 Top Portuguese Values Tasted 8/2014

6. Grao Vasco Dao (2010)

« Prev 6 of 6
Previously available for $8.99
Imported by: Evaton Inc. Ct. A blend of unspecified percentages of Jaen, Tinto Roriz, Touriga Nacional Bright, floral and simple on the nose though with nice depth to the vinous orange rind and white floral aromas. Smooth on entry, a bit lean but with a touch of flesh sticking to the the taut acid driven and dusty tannin laced structure. the fruit here is dusty and dry, austere with cranberry and raspberry undertones and a fine leathery, old book note of slight decay on the plate that adds complexity and a decidedly old school appeal here. The finish is modest, and this is basically a simple, fruity yet rustic wine but it’s very well balanced and has a lovely blend on intensity on the palate and well defined flavors. 87pts

  • 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!
