Portugal — Dão • $13.95 • 88/100

This is a very interesting blend of native Portuguese grapes, based on Tinta Roriz, with Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Jaen (Mencia) and Baga. The wine shows very little evolution despite its age, with bright acidity keeping the ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit quite fresh, perhaps aided by the fact that only 10% of the wine was aged in oak, with the balance in stainless steel. Tannins are fine and soft, alcohol is balanced, and the finish is lengthy. All-in-all, a very enjoyable, quaffable wine, and a terrific value. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#442210 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTERROIR WINE IMPORTS (Agent)
