QUINTA DO VALLADO - Duoro Red

Wine Region:
Douro, Portugal

25% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz, 10% (Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cao), 5% Sousao.

Tasting Notes:
This blend is dark red, with crimson highlights and an intense, mature red fruit nose, with hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese herb that has sweet, warm balsamic aromas with a hint of earthiness). The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied elegance, with mature, round tannins, leading to a long, persistent finish.
