Quinta do Vallado Douro Vinho Tinto 2018

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalA classic Portuguese field blend, mixing touriga franca, touriga nacional, tinta roriz, and sousão. Twenty percent of the mix has been growing for more than 100 years, with the remainder replanted in 1990. There is nothing shy about this wine, although, for all its weight and colour, the rich blackberry, black plums, and black cherries have a rift of minerals and violets throughout that keep it fresh and lively. Add some savoury scrub notes, and you have a very enjoyable and complex red wine that will easily age a decade and beyond. For now, grilled lamb chops or a pork roast will tame the tannins and serve the wine well.Tasted: 01 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 private wine stores Producer: Quinta do ValladoDistributors: Revelry Import Company
