Da Foz Douro Red

Da Foz Douro Red 2014

Douro Superior, Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis blend of touriga na├žional, touriga franca, and tinta roriz comes from 80+ year old vines on the terraced schist soils of the Douro. After ferment and foot trodding in old granite lagares, this spent 18 months maturing in new French oak barrels. The fruit has gobbled up the oak, as has time in bottle. This is for drinking now, with mellow, lightly grippy tannins housing dried aromatic rock roses, mulberry, raspberry jam, balsamic to a pinched finish. Best enjoyed as intended, with lamb or wild boar.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 private wine shops Producer: Quinta da FozDistributors: World Wine Synergy Inc.
