2008 Quinta de Cabriz Colheita Seleccionada Dao (Previously $10)

SKU #1064621

90 points Wine Spectator and #42 in Top 100 Wines of 2011: "A well-structured, muscular red, with a touch of Asian spice to the wild plum and dried raspberry flavors. Beef and mineral notes mark the finish. Distinctive, with a very sauvage allure. Drink now through 2015." (January 31st, 2011) Composed of indigenous varieties such as alfrocheiro, touriga nacional and tinta roriz, this lovely wine has spicy, ripe huckleberry aromas which lead to a palate of very pure, spicy, mineral, and most important of all, balanced, fruit. This is excellent wine for the money.

Dark with full-bodied flavor or as Wine Spectator notes a "muscular red". Found this wine by accident while in Luxembourg in October and was pleasantly surprised to find it recently at K&L. It will stand up to any number of hearty foods and is a steal at the price.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
