2009 Quinta do Roriz "Prazo de Roriz" Douro

SKU #1088882 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 Prazo de Roriz is principally Tinta Barroca (36%) and Tinta Roriz (31%) with 10% Tinta Francisca, 9% each of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional and a smattering of other grapes. Despite the name of the wines, some of the grapes also come from Perdiz, not just Roriz. This year’s version is ripe and meaty, not particularly concentrated, but nicely textured and well balanced.  (12/ 2011)

Wine Spectator

 Juicy and crisp, with concentrated wild plum, boysenberry and smoked meat flavors. Medium-grained tannins bolster this midpalate, carrying into the finish. (Web Only- 2012)

K&L Notes

From JancisRobinson.com: "36% Tinta Barocca, 31% Tinta Roriz, 10% Tinta Francesca, 9% Touriga Nacional, 9% Touriga Franca, 5% others. Bright purple, quite tight and lean. Plenty of fruit packed in. Typical Douro." (07/2012)

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.
