Quinta dos Roques Colheita 2018,Dao, Portugal

Blended Red from Portugal
Review Date : 06-Dec-2022
Deep ruby-black, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full and robust, with dark fruit, violet and oak spice aromas. Full-bodied, aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blueberry entwined with a hint of smoke, violet and an amalgam of spice. The mouthfeel is smooth with fine-grained, smoky tannins, contributing to a fine grip and lingering with smoke to a long, dry finish. Lively acidity balances a rich, robust palate. This red blend is powerful, with harmonious black fruit and spice enriched by smoky oak and tannin details and a lengthy closing. Match with smoked meat and grill over the next 5-7 years. A blend of Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roritz and Tinto Cao, fermented to 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2022 RRP $28.99
