2002 Quinta das Maias Jaen Dao

SKU #1086752

According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 06: "Medium ruby. High-toned aromas of oak spice and red berries, with a hint of licorice candy. Taut and firm, with fresh, herb-laced cherry flavor and a note of tangy bitter chocolate. Finishes solid, with fine-grained tannins, and flavors of cherry pit and exotic oak spice." Jaen is the same grape as mencía across the border in Spain. It really excels in schist and granitic soils, as this example shows. Earthy, sweet red fruited aromas lead to a palate displaying a lovely interplay between cherry, earth, mineral and emerging tertiary notes

Country:

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.
