Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, and Touriga Nacional. This wine has very nice Duoro character. It is dry. The first thing I notice about it is an attractive herbal aroma, something in the mint family. This aroma is very lively and pulls you in to dark fruits and an earthy body. It is well made and the tannins are balanced. There is a slight roughness, which, I think, attributes to the winemakerís choice at bottling terroir (the Duoro, with steeply terraced shale soil and brutally hot summers) while maintaining freshness. This wine is especially good for the table. 13.5% alcohol. It can handle a pairing of full flavored foods, like pork marinated in peppers and garlic.
